Arising out of the sheer joy of playing together, Twinscapes is the first recording that sees australian born Colin Edwin (of Porcupine Tree and Metallic Taste Of Blood) and italian born Lorenzo Feliciati of Naked Truth and Berserk! joining forces.
The two are joined in this adventure by Andi Pupato (of Nik Bärtsch‘s Ronin) on various percussions, Nils Petter Molvaer on trumpet, David Jackson (of Van Der Graaf Generator) on saxophones and Roberto Gualdi (of Italian prog stalwarts PFM).
Recorded in the South of England at Yellowfish Studios mid 2013, Twinscapes was mixed by further Bass stalwart Bill Laswell, a man well versed in dealing with the extensive palette of sounds and textures presented by the recordings.
Melodies, groove and skill are all intertwined in this oeuvre which extends far beyond the mere bass encounter into new and creative territory.
