'exoskeleton', the second album by Bloodcog. Bloodcog is now a five-piece: Fran Bass - electric bass, Richard Harding - chapman stick and classical guitar, Phil Hargreaves - saxes/flute, Richard Harrison - drums and objects, Pete Smyth - electronics and loops. It's funkier than the first one, and according to Corey Mwamba on Radio 3, a "swagger". Watch for live shows with this line-up later in the year...

'the imperfection of crowds' by Malchamech, a rocky improv trio of Richard Harding (chapman stick), Phil Hargreaves (saxes/flute) and Richard Harrison (drums/percussion).

whi 016

This is the third Graculus album, and as well as the usual offering of chamber/classical influenced improvisation, Richard Harding has taken the raw materials of the album and created a 48 minute ambient soundscape from them:

As it's a double, it's a little more expensive, but still only 9 for a pair of contrasting sonic experiences.

where we were - cover

Caroline Kraabel: alto sax & voice
Phil Hargreaves: tenor/soprano sax & flute

'Where We Were (Shadows of Liverpool)' is a CD on the Leo label, which represents the culmination of four years' work. We  recorded in significant and/or unusual acoustic locations in Liverpool, letting the environment have a say in the shape of the music. Then we stitched the recordings together to make an extended electro-acoustic composition, an amalgam of snap decision making and considered construction.
