orfeo 5 - Lament For The Makers

Lament For The Makers is a three track, 60 minute jazz album available for download featuring reworkings of source material from Cumbria Remixed.

The orfeo 5 line up for this album is the duo of Shaun Blezard (electronics) & Keith Jafrate (Saxophones). All the tracks were improvised and recorded live on 4th April 2011 at Keith's in Todmorden.

It was great to work with the recordings in a jazz setting with Keith and to find new ways to present and remould the sounds of Cumbria - it's always such a pleasure to work with him and again I'm really proud of the recordings. Help DIY music and buy a copy, cheers....

Two new remixes

We have had two more remixes sent in - both very different but equally great.

First up we have Bessie from Sheffield's Adrian Carter with a little funky thing featuring Cathedral Quarry flute and Janice Benson reading her Grandmother's postcards.

The we have The Sound Around Me from Birmingham's Carya Amara featuring the lovely sound of me uming and arring and trying desperately to make some kind of interesting point.
