Collocutor - Archaic Morning


Archaic Morning

On The Corner Records

Released: 24th March 2014 | 1 track world fusion single

The project grew from a desire to simply write the music that wanted to be written, rather than focus on a particular context or audience. As such the compositions draw inspiration from the diverse genres and musicians Tamar has encountered over the course of her career so far, including (but not exclusively!): jazz, afrobeat, Indian classical, Ethiopian roots, polyphonic choral music and minimalism – the link being primarily modal music that has a hypnotic effect (the line or pattern is as important as, if not more important than, the chordal harmony). The Collocutor collaborators were carefully picked for their particular skills and approaches, indeed the two percussionists played a large part in developing their roles so the end result is as much down to the people playing as the compositions they were initially presented with – it would all sound very different with a different group!

"'Afrobeat Redux! Archaic Morning is a totally fresh classic tune subtly played by this mighty ensemble. Collocutor know how to blow you away on their whole new vibe, and you won’t want to come back …"
