about

Here is the latest slamming batch of symphonic sonic wizardry from Bristol resident Andrew Cooke's SALTINGS project:

"Sold For Scrap is two compositions based around percussive ideas and their textures.

Side A is a live improvisation of prepared bass guitar (screws, nails, paperclips and springs), pedals and effects . This set was realised at The Old England, Bristol, in Summer 2017.

Side B is a home studio recorded rummage through my trusty percussive box of nonsense, combining everything from kalimba, pellet drum, cowbells, hooves and shakers, alongside some miscellaneous items that I can’t even name picked up on various travels. It’s a journey through each and every one, exploring the sonic possibilities of their unpitched nature.

Both sides cohere to an almost symphonic structure, with various themes and leitmotifs that run through the pieces, mainly in the form of specific rhythms. In keeping with the ethos of the SALTINGS project, they attempt to conjure up fragmented soundworlds of abstract musical logic, restless and constantly moving further into the unknown."

REVIEWS:
--------------
"Scrap. I love scrap. I've always loved scrap. Please forgive the Ripping Yarns intrusion as Andrew Cooke's Saltings project needs to be discussed instead. He uses all kinds of non musical things here including found percussion and an improvised bass guitar to make a kind of progressive, percussion-led electronica that sees Cooke playing all the instruments in order to layer up his leftfield symphonies."
