Guest Appearances

Robert Fripp / Andrew Keeling / David Singleton - The Wine of Silence (Orchestral Soundscapes) (cd)

Since the early 1990s, Robert Fripp has utilised the latest in looping technology and digital effects to create Soundscapes, a gradually unfolding, highly textured, expansive and overtly symphonic music.

The Wine of Silence is the first album to feature orchestral arrangements of Fripp's groundbreaking work in this field.

Orchestrated by composer Andrew Keeling, performed by the Metropole Orkest and subjected to post-production re-imagining by David Singleton, the results of this inspired collaboration evoke the works of Part, Gorecki, Tavener and the 'holy minimalist' school of composition.

The Wine Of Silence comprises a sublime and moving collection of contemporary orchestral music.

"Their shimmering tonality encompasses luminous passages of yearning melody, turbulent percussive rumblings, glowering,
sepulchral brass undertows and achingly beautiful strings." - Sid Smith

Stick Men - Absalom (cd)

Stick Men's 2011 mini-album Absalom sees the peerless King Crimson rhythm section of Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto creating a unique brand of power trio music with Touch Guitar virtuoso, Markus Reuter (Centrozoon etc).

Pat Mastelotto - Recidivate (double cd)

A two-disc set documenting King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto's ongoing love affair with the recording studio.

The 42 track Recidivate contains many unreleased pieces and remixes from Pat's work with Steven Wilson, Robert Fripp, Tony Levin, Trey Gunn and more.

Split into two discs ('Traps' and 'Buttons'), Recidivate is an excellent introduction to Pat's unique brand of Rock Electronica, IDM and World Music.

The Humans - Sugar Rush (cd)

Sugar Rush is the second album by The Humans (the trio of Toyah Willcox, Bill Rieflin and Chris Wong).

Containing 12 tracks that combine haunting soundscapes, edgy experiments and sweet melodies, Sugar Rush develops further the dynamic eclecticism of the band's debut with its accessible yet uncompromising approach.

The album features the magical touch of guest 'Human' Robert Fripp on all tracks.

The cd includes a code enabling access to free downloads of live tracks recorded at the Scala in February 2010.

Levin Torn White - Levin Torn White (cd)

A year in the making, Levin Torn White comprises an exceptional collection of complex instrumentals that encompass wild experiments and atmospheric interludes.

A truly unexpected and unique alliance of three legendary musicians (King Crimson's Tony Levin, guitar maverick David Torn and Alan White from Yes).

David Sylvian / Robert Fripp - The First Day (cd)

Following on from their glorious and lyrical collaborative work on Gone To Earth, David Sylvian and Robert Fripp produced the unexpectedly fiery and funky The First Day in 1993.

Hypnotically groovy and intensely vicious, while showcasing Fripp's Soundscapes identity, the album marked a departure for Sylvian and can be more easily understood as a missing King Crimson link between Three Of A Perfect Pair and Thrak than a typical post-Japan Sylvian venture.

Pete Sinfield - Still (double cd)

An expanded double disc edition of Pete Sinfield's eccentric and beguiling 1973 solo album.

Featuring guest performances from the likes of Greg Lake, John Wetton, Ian Wallace, Keith Tippett and Mel Collins, though more whimsical in nature, Still shares stylistic similarities with King Crimson's Islands and Lizard.

Contains detailed sleeve notes.

Slow Electric - Slow Electric (cd)

Initially formed to play three dates at the 2010 Estonian Jazz Festival, Slow Electric is a new project from Tim Bowness and Peter Chilvers, and the Estonian duo UMA (guitarist Robert Jurjendal and trumpeter Aleksei Saks).

Using recordings from the concerts as a basis, Bowness recorded new vocals and Chilvers contributed additional keyboards and atmospherics. King Crimson?s Tony Levin added bass/chapman stick to two of the album's six songs, and the multi-tracks were mixed by ace Zurich-based percussionist/producer Andi Pupato (Nik Bartsch?s Ronin).

From the elegiac opener Towards The Shore to the 5/4 groove of Criminal Caught In The Crime, the quartet combines its collective influences - singer-songwriter, electronica/ambient and European jazz - with gracefully empathetic performances.

The Carl Glover designed digipack comes with a booklet featuring sleeve notes by Tim Bowness.

Quodia - The Arrow

Quodia, featuring Trey Gunn (King Crimson) and Joe Mendelson (Rise Robots Rise) is, 'A synthesis of music, theatre, video art, and animation; a psychedelic contemporary parable.' (BBC Moscow).

Using video projection and live instruments (including 10 string touch guitar, keyboards, and electronic percussion) Quodia creates an experience that is part movie, part theatre, and part concert.

The music for The Arrow (2007) is divided into seven chapters, containing the entire piece in audio form.

'Channeling both Brian Eno and Jack Kerouac, Quodia unfolds an elegant spectacle, telling histories with surprise, mystery, fear, and salvation. A loaded weapon of the future.' - Toma Review

'Sounding like a mix of Tangerine Dream and King Crimson, with compelling and captivating moods and atmospheres.' - Windhawk

Memories Of Machines - Warm Winter

Warm Winter is the debut album by Memories Of Machines, the duo comprising Tim Bowness (No-Man) and Giancarlo Erra (Nosound).

An assured and emotionally cohesive debut, Warm Winter ably highlights the sympathetic musical chemistry between Bowness and Erra, and includes guest contributions from the likes of Peter Hammill, Colin Edwin, Robert Fripp, Steven Wilson, Julianne Regan (All About Eve), Jim Matheos (OSI/Fates Warning) and Huxflux Nettermalm (Paatos).

The album, which is available as a digi-pack cd and a limited edition heavyweight vinyl release, was mixed by Steven Wilson and mastered by Jon Astley (The Who, Led Zeppelin, Tori Amos).

'A beguiling mix of giant-sounding Art Rock and bittersweet self-reflection.' - Classic Rock

Trey Gunn - Modulator (cd)

Alongside international drumming icon, and rhythmic illusionist Marco Minnemann, former King Crimson member and Tap Guitar innovator Trey Gunn explores new compositional and rhythmic possibilities with his latest album Modulator.

An astonishingly complex and accomplished technological feat that encompasses the brutal and the ethereal, Gunn regards this as one of the most challenging projects of his long and distinguished career.

Bruford Levin Upper Extremities - Blue Nights (double cd)

Recorded live in Japan and the US during 1998, Blue Nights is the acclaimed double cd release from Bill Bruford and Tony Levin's Jazz-tinged Art Rock supergroup, B.L.U.E., which also included David Torn on guitar/loops and Chris Botti on trumpet.

An ideal companion to King Crimson's innovative, contemporaneous, ProjeKcts series of releases.

Julie Slick - Julie Slick (cd)

The debut instrumental release from Adrian Belew Power Trio bassist Julie Slick is an adventurous combination of progressive rock, jazz-fusion, funk, electronica, post-rock, and world music influences.

Featuring an inspired ensemble, including King Crimson members Robert Fripp and Pat Mastelotto, the album is an impressive statement from a talent Guitar Player's Anil Prasad described as being, "One of the best bassists in the world."

The Bruised Romantic Glee Club is the 5th and most personal solo album by composer Jakko M. Jakszyk.
