The fantastic people at Circuit Sweet have released a 27 track compilation for free download, to celebrate their 11 year anniversary.
I was approached by Circuit Sweet to submit a previously unheard track for the compilation. I have submitted an archive piece simply titled ‘Movement 6’ featuring my dear friend, Andre Drage.
About the track: Back in 2017 I was commissioned to write and record a soundtrack for a documentary film about Irish boxing with a very tight deadline of just one week. Wanting acoustic drums, and the best drummer, I contacted Andre Drage to perform on the soundtrack. The documentary was never completed but Andre and I have discussed the option of releasing some of the soundtrack content independently as we were so pleased with the results.
The opportunity has finally arisen. The piece is incredibly minimal and my intention was to contrast the innate aggression against the beautiful synchronicity of boxing – a kind of, “float like a feather, sting like a bee” analogy. All audio was recorded by yours truly in Oslo/Asker, Norway in 2017. Drums performed by Andre Drage at Hausmania’s Flerbrukshallen in Oslo. Piano performed by myself at Vidar’s house. I tidied the mix and mastered it at my studio in Dikemark, Norway in March 2020.
It’s amazing to see our music listed next to so many great artists. Special thanks to Naomi and Oli at Circuit Sweet for being infinitely incredible and for the invitation to contribute to the project.
