Postcard From Home

Kristian Borring lock down studio

It is almost already becoming old news that musicians and artists have tackled the pandemic by embracing making online live concerts and edited videos performances. I have seen some of my colleagues really getting creative and doing great stuff.

Like many I have also taken the opportunity to upgrade my home recording setup. I have been blessed with a few recording contracts during the lockdown. One is a recording project by drummer Mike Pignéguy. We were supposed to do a live recording with his group before the world stopped spinning, and now Mike is in full swing creating a different kind of recording.

I also had the pleasure of recording my awesome wife playing cajon and other percussion for a new piece by John Barber.

However, the real exciting piece of news for me is that I have used the pandemic to fast track the making of a new solo project, which consists of recording some new pieces and etudes in a less traditional fashion to my previous albums. I’ll will be doing lots myself. It is all the result of my current research into non-isochronous meter.

I have been gearing up to do this project for a while, but can never find the time and space for it. All is still in early stages and seems still a bit slow moving; however, I have made progress and contacted a few guys to get involved.

My worry is getting caught up by life as the world starts moving again. In any case, I hope I can start sharing some of this work soon. I am not too inspired by the ‘Facebook/Instagram’ platform way-of-listening, so I still have to think about output format. Probably I simply need to be patient and look at making a full album release. We will see…
