'Where We Were (Shadows of Liverpool)' is a CD on the Leo
label, which represents the culmination of four years' work. We're both
saxophonists, and since 2000 we've been recording in significant and/or
unusual acoustic locations in Liverpool, letting the environment have a
say in the shape of the music. Then we stitched the recordings together
to make an extended electro-acoustic composition, an amalgam of snap
decision making and considered construction.
It was a long and fascinating project, and there are a lot of
stories connected with it. This website contains some of them.
