Tilman Lewis and I (cello duo, The Knot) have now completed our first release. It’s a set of seven miniatures on the second side of a cassette for Toronto’s Arachnidiscs label’s split series. The other side has been filled by Montreal-based bassist Aaron Lumley. Needless to say, we’re excited about it, and curious to hear Lumley’s contribution.
Our collection varies widely in tone, featuring thick dark-hued drones, an almost no-wave-style hackfest employing our signature cello preparations, and even some richly melodic pieces.
Here are two short pieces that we liked, but didn’t include due to the limited duration (20 minutes).
