Hello! It was my birthday the other day, since it has been such a lovely year so far I thought I’d give a present to all of you! That’s how it works, right?
Below is some information on Transitory Adaptations, a free download mixtape. Have a listen, and if you’re in Brisbane come say hi at upcoming shows on July 10 (The Bearded Lady, supporting Jason Lescalleet for an Avantwhatever festival sideshow), August 7 (The Triffid, 3x sets!), August 28 (Aether sessions @ Woolly Mammoth), September 1 (The Milk Factory, supporting Sensaround) and at BIGSOUND festival on September 7?
Transitory Adaptations is a ‘mixtape’ companion of Fantasy League (emporium.room40.org/products/567267-andrew-tuttle-fantasy-league), Brisbane musician Andrew Tuttle’s (www.andrewtuttle.com.au) second full-length album.
Released in March 2016 on Room40’s Someone Good imprint, Fantasy League is an instrumental sonic convergence of improvisation and composition; and electronic and acoustic tones performed on instrumentation including computer, banjo, synthesiser and acoustic guitar.
Transitory Adaptations threads together improvisations recorded, edited and mixed by Tuttle whilst touring Europe in April 2016, prior to a residency at Elektronmusikstudion EMS in Stockholm.
An alternate version of Transitory Adaptations was broadcast on Resonance Extra’s ‘Out From Under’ program in May 2016.
