wrote a thing about improv, audiences and recording - a bit of PhD thinking-out-loud :)
Dodged a bullet last night - smashed my toes into the side of the bath while getting in - the worst pain I've felt in ages, and I was dreading the likelihood that I'd broken any of them (cycling would be pretty tricky with a pile of broken toes)... This morning my foot aches and there's some light brusing on my toes, but seems like I missed out on actually breaking anything. phew... Still, that hurt massively. Can't remember the last time I felt pain like that...
Today is the anniversary of my first proper solo gig - 19 years ago I played at The Troubadour in London on a double bill with Carrie Melbourne, recorded the gig on minidisc and one of the tunes from it ended up on my debut solo album, the majority of which was recorded at The Troubadour the following March. It was such a lovely gig, and represented a significant leap forward in the journey to where we are now. ❤️🎶

New album! and New Video! The album is called Restless, and is out for my #bandcamp
# subscribers now - this 22 minute video is the 2nd track from it. It's a live recording, with Pete Fraser on Sax, and it's rather lovely - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr1cDdmo4yQ
the instrument I'm playing at the beginning for the piano part (and later on for the drums) is a Keith McMillen Quneo - amazing midi performance surface :) https://www.keithmcmillen.com/products/quneo/
From Erin McKeown on Twitter: ".@tomduncalf made a little hack that connects your top @Spotify artists/tracks to their @Bandcamp tracks etc. FYI bandcamp is by far the best bang per digital click for artists https://tomduncalf.github.io/supportify/ so go ahead, accumulate metrics AND support artists /END"
I've got a new album coming out next week, which was recorded two weeks ago - but first I have to come up with track titles and artwork. I love this stage, but it's also a big ole stress. I'm soooo happy with the music - it a live recording of a duo improv gig with an amazing saxophonist. Here's the last album we did:
Here's something absolutely glorious I found this morning - a Bobby Brown cover on YouTube. Three geniuses, just sat on a couch playing. The BVs are *perfect*
The UK's leading solo bass guitarist, but don't let that put you off. Journalisting, teaching and PhDing too. See http://stevelawson.net for more...
