Product Notes

Martin Pyne is a percussionist, composer, and improviser working from near London in the UK. He has extensive experience in a wide range of contemporary music styles from classical to jazz and free improvisation. He is a member of Dangerous Kitchen, a trio with renowned sax player Stan Sulzmann and fellow percussionist Simon Allen, and composer Paul Robinson's Harmonie Band. He is very active on the contemporary dance scene in London and has worked with several choreographers including Mark Baldwin, Chard Gonzalez and Sheron Wray. He has developed a unique playing style combining electronics and acoustic instuments to create a rich and expressive sound world. Long Voyage Home, his debut solo album, is performed by Martin, mostly on a sampling drum pad, as well as toy piano and synthesizer, and features guest artists Dai Pritchard (from Klub Mundi and Loose Tubes) on clarinets and saxophone, singer Joseph Aquilina, and BBC Radio presenter Sarah walker. The music, which draws on Homer's Odyssey for inspiration, is organic and evocative, with a raft of mysterious and hypnotic textures. Musical inluences range from Miles Davis, to John Cage taking in the likes of Bjork and Bobby Previte, as well as a number of world musics, along the way. On a recent edition of BBC Radio 3's MIXING IT show, the track Stringing The Bow was favourably compared to sevenities era Miles Davis.
