PEDRO REYES – DISARM

Disarm LP  (2013)

Producer John Coxon invited me to join him on this project for the Lisson Gallery.  We had just one day to make an album using instruments constructed entirely from decommissioned firearms by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes.  Four other musicians joined us for the recording at RAK Studios––Eben Bull, Beatrice Dillon, Charles Hayward and Ashley Wales––after which John and I mixed the LP at my studio. We also performed some of the pieces live––at the opening night of Pedro's exhibition at the Lisson, and at the 2014 Anna Politkovskaya Award ceremony at the Southbank.
