The album itself was recorded live to reel to reel tape on March 29th 2016 to be aired as a special on dublab.com. This incarnation of the ensemble came together to serve as backing group for Cate Le Bon’s “Crab Day” promotional tour as well as the opening act. We performed in Brussels, Paris, Istanbul, Cardiff, London, Los Angeles, and New York City. BANANA was a new experience for us. The sound of musicians I feel very connected to playing freely around composed pieces under my direction – exploring themes and theories of naturalism and modalism through repetition. For those in search of a bath, a rinse, a departure, or an expansion. Hopefully exotic, hopefully pleasant.
