picked acoustic and muted trumpet wash
The very beginning of our 05 March 2009 gig at the Plough, the moment four people who had never met started making ambient chillout music without a drummer (I was off stage at this point, but the vocal and keyboard chime loop is mine). There are at least two tempos going on here, sometimes at the same time. Nick begins with some picked harmonics, Nils suggests various phrases on electric and does general decorations, but the for the backbone I've done some gratuitous looping of Matt's acoustic and Nick's bass. Simon's muted trumpet surprises the whole thing with its complete sonic and textural counterpoint to the guitars.
