Primaudial Records is proud to present a collection of 14 new tracks from Ayota on an album entitled 'Floating worlds'. The sound is more minimal than the previous 'Helicopter Cuts' LP, with piano led improvisations and vocal melodies. Three of the songs feature the sensual vocal talents of Chihiro Butterfly from Sendai Japan, while Shawn Lee rejoins the project with some guitar experimentation recorded in his famous Trans-Yank studio. Original Ayota vocalist Sachie Kaga also lends her sublime vocals to two songs. Some of the field recordings that inspired these tracks include rain, kettles, checkout tills and train stations. "Like a gourd floating along with the river current, this is what we call the floating world."

I'm in Japan for a couple of weeks.. Apart from providing a break from hectic London life, it's also gives me a chance to work on some of my own music.. I've got a whole heap of Ayota tracks, all in varying states of completion, and this new piece of music is actually written as an outro to an existing piano improvisation. I wrote it a couple of days ago, and thought it would marry quite well with some video I took as our train pulled out of Osaka station bound for Nagoya..

Ayota Live at Corsica Studios

Date: 
9 February, 2013

This is a gig I did at Corsica Studios on Saturday 9th February 2013 for Guy McCreery's Third Ear Label, who released the Ayota album 'Helicopter Cuts' the day before.

It was the first time to perform Ayota solo, as usually I get Simon Palm Skin, Jeremy Shaw, Shawn Lee and a vocalist to help me out.

My setup consisted of Laptop using Ableton Live, Novation Launchpad and a Korg NanoKontrol2.

I performed a selection of Ayota original tracks & remixes.. I will try to post a tracklisting soon!

There is a hilarious bit in the middle when a guy came up to me and asked if I took requests.. and then asked if he could plug his iPod in instead of listening to my set. I told him to go next door to where the techno was...

Here are some Ayota links...
