|➲ Adrian Lane “Playing With Ghosts” ★ Label: Preserved Sound ★ Releases 18 August 2017 ★|
On his album “Playing With Ghosts“, Adrian Lane uses 100-year-old cylinder recordings as the starting point for new compositions – chopping them up, reordering them and playing along to build up a series of completely new compositions.
“I’ve always liked the idea of collage and often include this in my visual art,” says Adrian. “So I wanted to do something that incorporated this approach in my music.”
While the concept of Playing With Ghosts is similar to James Leyland Kirby’s The Caretaker project, Adrian uses the cylinder recordings to build up each piece so that it bears little resemblance to the original.
