The (medio) Asiento is a fundamental stage in the development of a Santero’s spiritual path. It is both a point of arrival and a point of departure.

In the same way, the music on Animation‘s Asiento is both a point of arrival and one of departure for bandleader Bob Belden. It represents the first (live) recording by the band after a long hiatus and the last with the formation comprising Tim Hagans on trumpet, DJ Logic on turntables, Scott Kinsey on keyboards, Matt Garrison on bass and Guy Licata on drums.

Asiento is a re-interpretation of Miles Davis’ seminal work Bitches Brew as seen through the Spyglass of Animation’s hardbop + drum’n’bass aesthetic.
