Notes

Ex-Wise Heads (Colin Edwin and Geoff Leigh) new release "Schemata" sees the duo explore some darker and more primal elements over the course of their new album.

Absorbing, yet accessible, just over an hour of new music showcases the duo's ever developing fascination with ambient soundscapes, minimalism, atmospherics, unusual instrumentation and exotic rhythmic patterns around the principal elements of Colin Edwin's forceful bass playing and Geoff Leigh's fearless and spontaneous flute and saxophone solos. Rick Edwards guests on percussion throughout and Rajan Spolia adds his inimitable raga like acoustic guitar work to the nine minute closing track "Breathing to Forget".

Personnel:

Geoff Leigh: Flutes, Soprano Saxophone, Jaws Harp, Zither, Chaos
Colin Edwin: Fretless, Fretted and Upright Basses, Programming, Keyboards
Rick Edwards: Various Percussion
Rajan Spolia: Acoustic Guitar on "Breathing to Forget"

Recorded and mixed by Colin Edwin at Nightspace
