Matthew Bourne – Recording Session 2

For the second recording session working on our collaboration with pianist Matthew Bourne, we were lucky enough to get the run of Besbrode Pianos in Leeds for a day in October 2015. Besbrode, set in stone-and-brick surroundings straight out of Leeds’ industrial past, houses some fascinating, beautiful and bizarre instruments. These pianos make sounds that can’t be captured anywhere else. Matthew draws upon each instrument’s particularities giving us the lyrical and frenetic materials in equal measure.
