Boomkat Product Review:
Planet Mu head for the lab once again, the debut album from Birmingham's ED Lawes straddling some pretty academic material across 14 tracks. "Ed divides the works between 'pieces' (generally scored/improvised on traditional instruments) and 'tracks' (which can be generalised as more computer-based or electro- acoustic works).The pieces include studies for violin, double bass & tenor saxophone and works for mixed ensemble among other things. The performances, recordings and improvisations are carefully edited and processed, layered and combined to form these pieces (and tracks); for whatever reason there is a tremendous depth of emotion within them."
