Idée fixe 23:14


"Idée fixe" has been arranged from a collection of recordings gathered from various locations and situations that I have found myself in over the last handful of years. Where and how is not so important in this case. This current arrangement has mutated from an installation, which germinated in various recent live performances, which sourced their material from multiple projects and situations. So this material has been added to, subtracted from, rearranged and generally mistreated many times before it has reached this current form. Some of it will continue to be pushed and pulled around some more. I won't be able to help myself...

I have crossed paths with many people during the gestation of this idée fixe and I would like to thank a handful in particular: Todd Anderson-Kunert, Nigel Brown, John Grzinich, Camilla Hannan, Jim Haynes, Alice Hui-Sheng Chang, Eric La Casa, Francisco Meirino, David Mutch, Hamish Sinclair, Thembi Soddell, Aneta Trajkoski and Simon Whetham; Madelynne Cornish and Philip Samartzis from BCSC and all from Bogong:Electric; all from with AC:Mooste and AC:Castlemaine; Klaus Filip and all from Reheat.
