All Aboard The Sun Ship
Electronic music blends with minimal, lounge/chill-out and space music.
Bridge came together at the Quadelectronic improvised electronic music events in Leicester, UK.
Chris & Jim work together in the duo Memory Wire and after some excellent jams together at Quadelectronic, they thought that the electronic, ambient and minimal music that Memory Wire made would have a whole new dimension with Christina's solid and lyrical bass and Kafka's loops and boxes of tricks.
So they booked a studio and great things happened. The ebb and flow between the elements of minimal, lounge, electronic, and chill-out imediately felt right.
Chris flits from theremin to keyboards to vocal to flute to guitar, while Jim blends in washes of sound from his laptop, or joining Chris in a 2 keyboard Terry Riley-esque minimal dervish. Kafka adds beats, loops, vocals and strange samplings from his boxes, and Christina's bass is the rock that binds it all together.
Sun Ship gathers these sessions with some concert recordings to make a wonderful album that visits a lot of places between floating and grooving.
