John is just about the most exacting and heroically meticulous composer you could imagine. Huge swathes of CD’s are scoured or long improv sessions recorded so that he can capture the tiny fragments of sound that are then used to build up his compositions. In just about the most painstaking process we can imaging [averaging about 1 min a month], these fragments are recombined and woven into spare and precise, violent yet beautiful pieces that in their final form, could in equal parts be mistaken for onkyo electronica or the more spartan work of Evan Parker.
We started documenting our events in 2003 so unfortunately there is no video or audio documentation of this performance. If you have a bootleg or any photos you’d like to share with us, we would love to see them: get in touch with us here.
