NEMO 028
year: 2008

project coordinator:Nick Robinson
mastering: Nick Robinson
artwork:Nick Robinson


The inspiration for this project was the signs of the zodiac. The idea seemed to promise strong themes, formed a coherent set, and required suitable numbers of contributors. Ronny arrived just too late, but he luckily discovered a 13th sign, so he made it in the end. As ever, we each interpreted the sign in our own special ways.

  I reckon the spirit of Steve Howe is also in evidence - that proggy influence we too often resist ;) Good work DCO!

  i deeply like david's guitar playing, but as an extra plus, you got tons of musicianship behind his composition. players do they job but creators matter a lot.

"Sagittarius" was created with computer-generated tones, appearing first in a high/low ostinato and then microtonal canons. These give way to a recording of rhubarb being pushed through a sieve while the kitchen sink drips.

Some ostinato guitar phrases in different time signatures, turning into a darker improv section.
