December 2012: New trio CD released: Far Flung + duo recording w Myra Melford
It's been a huge 6 months since the last posting.
In November the Alister Spence Trio released our 5th album, Far Flung: our first double album. We are very pleased with this release. It maybe our best release to date. The launch gig at the Sound Lounge several weeks before was a great celebration. And there plans for a vinyl release of Far Flung in the coming months.
Also in November I had the privilege of recording a duo piano improvisation with the extraordinary Myra Melford, due for broadcast and streaming soon. date TBA.
Lastly I played a gig with Lawrence English (electronics) and Mary Rapp (cello). Lawrence and I are composing the music for a new theatre production I Love Todd Sampson to be premiered in Sydney in February.
In January/February I have a national tour with Raymond MacDonald to promote Stepping Between The Shadows, and a UK tour with Raymond, Joe Williamson and Chris Cantillo to promote Far Flung. More on that (and tour dates very soon).
