BEFOREHAND formed exclusively for the an appearance at the launch concert for Angharad Davies' 'Six Studies' release on Confront. That debut concert performance was recorded and, following a long standing ritual at Confront, was subsequently released for public consumption and critique.
No rehearsal beforehand(!), straight into the music. Dimitra played with one functioning arm, the other strapped up due to a broken elbow. Mark played his electronics set-up, last used at a show with Keith Rowe in Dublin in 2006. Eight years in a case never touched.
Potential to fail? Possibly. Did it?
Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga: zither
Mark Wastell: electronics, bowls, shruti box
Recorded at Hundred Years Gallery, Hoxton, London 29 March 2014
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Constantine Dinos Michaelides
