Clutter vs Deep Cabaret 3 – Flowers In The Attic – Clutter Music – CM009 (2011) – Download
I was asked to do a remix of a couple of tracks by Deep Cabaret 3, just to see how it would sound/what I would do with there work.
The stems for Hiding and Matchless were deconstructed and then used as sources for improvisations. After listening through to the results I was pleased with the results and realised I might have a ‘long form’ remix lasting over an hour. I edited the audio down to 72 minutes and am now releasing the results as an album.
Deep Cabaret 3 brings together Matt Robinson, of The Inititiative on bass clarinet; Paul Sherwood, of Quercus, on hurdy-gurdy and Steve Lewis, of Orchestre DC Dansette & Deep Clutter, on voice, guitar & shruti. Pure jazz meets pure folk mediated by an impure jack of none who plays guitar as only a drummer could.
Noir-drenched dronesongs meet desert blues improv – fulsome and romantic one moment, edgy and disturbing the next. Then there are the lyrics, adapted from the likes of Beckett, Borges and Bukows…
