Vocal/Drone collaboration

The long-awaited collaboration between Children of the Drone and the as-yet-unnamed Crediton vocal improvisation group finally happened on Wednesday. I've just got back from the Big Green Gathering and am listening back to the recordings now. I remember the first piece feeling very untogether, a real struggle - but a couple of minutes in it's not sounding half as bad as I remember. The later (after tea-break) sections seem really rather lovely:

I'll also be uploading a few fragments I recorded jamming with various Mordekkers (Peni and Stef's band from West Wales) at the Green Gathering, once I've processed those minidiscs.
