Nightports w/ Matthew Bourne
Released March 2nd 2018 (The Leaf Label; BAY108)
9-track studio album; 45 minutes
Co-writer & co-producer (with Adam Martin and Matthew Bourne)
Nightports was established by musician-producers Adam Martin (based in Leeds) and Mark Slater (Hull), and Nightports w/ Matthew Bourne is the first of a series of collaborative albums to be released by The Leaf Label. The recordings coax hitherto unheard sounds from a range of pianos – decrepit dusty uprights holding their own against the attack and precision of a modern concert grand. The lines between the source material and the manipulations are seamless, delivering an unexpected percussive drive and emotional impact.
