Richard Barbieri

Things Buried / Stranger Inside (double cd pre-order)

A 2017 Kscope mid-price reissue of Richard Barbieri's first two solo albums from 2005 and 2008.

Things Buried is Barbieri's debut solo album; an instrumental work that highlights Barbieri's unique approach to sound and mood, ranging from textural atmospherics to dynamic rhythmic passages. The album also features the distinctive styles of Percy Jones (Brian Eno, Brand X) on fretless bass guitar and Andy Gangadeen (The Bays, Massive Attack) on Drums.

Stranger Inside further developed Barbieri's unique sound and the album includes contributions from long-term creative partners Steve Jansen (mixing/co-arranging), Steven Wilson (mastering), Gavin Harrison (drums) and the legendary double bass player, Danny Thompson (Pentangle). Although instrumental in nature, most tracks feature radical and atmospheric manipulations of the sampled voices of Tim Bowness and Suzanne Barbieri.

Pre-order for 21st April release.

The Affect

Conscious (cdr)

A genre busting collaborative project featuring Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree, O.R.k., Twinscapes etc), Bristol based poet James Hope and guitarist/sound designer Matthew Richards.

James Hope's cinematic language is placed against a background of infectious trippy bass lines and finely tuned rhythmic elements topped off by Matthew Richard's left-field electronica and guitar additions.
