TRESTLE RECORDS - ONE DAY BAND SESSION 5 FREE ALBUM STREAM

SEB ROCHFORD/ DAVID COULTER/ LEO ABRAHAMS

Leo Abrahams – Guitar, effects

David Coulter – Saw, Jaw Harp, Percussion, Flute

Seb Rochford - Drums
 

Trestle Records is pleased to present the latest One Day Band session featuring Leo Abrahams, David Coulter and Seb Rochford.

A vast array of textures greets the listener. Ambient echoes, scratchy percussion, crunchy loops, washed out delays, electronic feedback. Cinematic sweeps sit at ease with bare knuckle percussive drive, whilst jaw harp pulses and the saw bends its moan atop guitar, abstracted into ambience. There is a profound sense of ceremony at work even in the more subtle passages of interplay where the improvisers allow space, self-editing in attuned support of one another and the sounds being discovered.

The recording took place at Netil House Hackney on the day following the release of Coulter and Rochford’s record, Good Friday, available at www.trestlerec.com
 

The One Day Band sessions are an ongoing series hosted by Trestle Records and Callum Sadler at Netil House. Musicians are invited to participate in the making of an album improvised and recorded in a single day. Often the collaborators are meeting for the first time on the day of recording. After a minimum of post-production the results are published on www.trestlerec.com free to stream.

  • David Coulter - Jaw Harp, Voice, Drums, Noises // Seb Rochford - Drums, Voice, Other Sounds

    Recorded over one day on Good Friday 2015, the improvised session was essentially stripped back to drums and jaw harp for the most part. The recording is a document to an ethos of exploration and communication with the tracks ranging from snippets, utterances that pass by briefly, to pieces that gain traction wandering into highly rhythmical, motoric territories.

TRESTLE RECORDS - NEW RELEASES - DAVID COULTER/ SEB ROCHFORD /LEO ABRAHAMS

So excited to have been able to make some of the most exciting music I've ever made with two of the greatest musicians I have ever played with. To be able to play and explore freely with Leo Abrahams and Seb Rochford, two beautiful human beings, friends and musical colleagues, is one of the richest and most fulfilling of my musical collaborations ever. I just never cease to be amazed at their generosity of spirit and sonic visions. Whenever we meet and play something special happens. I am thrilled to be able to share the fruit of one such encounter. Two offerings from two different encounters.

Discreet + Oblique: The Music Of Brian Eno - at the Barbican, Transcender Festival 26 September 2015

Leo Abrahams and I were asked to rework our Discreet + Oblique project for the Barbican's Transcender Festival a few weeks ago. We continued our collaboration with The Necks and were joined by Benge, John Harle, Olly Coates and Emma Smith to rework the piece for a larger space and a different audience. It was an inspiring few days and the performance was a very memorable one. Huge thanks to all those folk who helped make it happen.

"If Discreet Music offered a new way of hearing to music, then Discreet + Oblique offers of new way of listening to it. The performance feels like an exercise in chaos theory, where the slightest alteration of a foundational element could render a new work entirely. The developments made to Eno’s work by these musicians is overwhelming, it’s immediacy and extemporaneity turning a tribute into this bright, shiny new thing. Even more overwhelming is to consider the ways in which it could’ve been different if it was tackled by different musicians, or with a different set of Oblique Strategies, or even if the cellist had slept on his neck funny. The scope of this project is, in theory, infinite." The Quietus
