about

This is my second album release with my solo bass and loop station works.

This album was inspired by a trip that I made to the island of Mauritius, the place where I was born. When thinking about what I wanted the album to be about, there was a sudden sense of being overwhelmed. So much has happened since the release of my debut album ‘No Distance Too Far’. 2016 has seen many great artists pass and some big changes on the world stage. However, having time to relax and reflect certainly helped me to channel my thoughts. Combine this mindset with the bass guitar and here we are!

In a quite unusual circumstance, it was looking at a tree in the garden of the house that I was in that gave me the idea for the album name. When writing this album I wanted to continue with my style of playing, incorporating tapping, natural harmonics, and finger style technique alongside chorus and compression. As with my previous album, there are no vocals. The bass is my voice in these pieces, telling the stories that you are about to read.

Upon my return to the UK, I entered the studio in late October to record these pieces with Nathan Long. The music was recorded using a live setup and Direct input to fully release the sound that was envisaged. A great deal of time went into finding the sound as I have found these pieces to be very personal to me.

The album is intended to be listened to in one sitting in order fully hear the continual soundscape between tracks. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the music.

Sincerely,

Art Banymandhub
