Trestle Rec - Instrumental Music of All Genres

From Pop to Musique Concrete


TRESTLE RECORDS is proud to present the new solo project from multi-instrumentalist Keir Vine (Portico Quartet). Instance is an 8 track LP conceived by Keir whilst in residency in the bucolic surroundings of Suffolk and completed in his London based studio. Using unlocked village churches, Keir took the opportunity to make a series of recordings that established the overall feeling for the compositions. It is this sense of crystalised moments and chance that directed the continuing ethos of the work.

Charles Hayward Drums // Chris Sharkey - Guitar, Bass & Electronics // Jack Wyllie - Sax, Synth and FX

Session 16 brings together the kinetic inventiveness of drummer Charles Hayward with the echoing sax-scapes of Jack Wyllie and the guitar/bass dexterity of Chris Sharkey. Shifting with inventiveness, balancing improvised gesture and time keeping Charles’s playing is consistently offering up ideas. Jack’s saxophone sound, well known from his activity with The Portico Quartet, bathes the session in atmospheric drones, augmenting the saxophone as he does with fx pedals to provide synth like textures. It’s a sound drifting in from a distance, reminiscent of Ethiopian and North African jazz sensibilities. Chris Sharkey provided both guitar and bass during the session, ranging his style from staccato bass grooves, exploratory jazz riffs to FX soaked drones and occasional laptop samples.
