'Waiting Space started off at the end of 2013, as a little casual affair from my main project of the time: Ghetto Amaretto. The initial idea was lucid - to have a platform for ideas that wouldn’t fit elsewhere - but it became a little more coherent over 2014, where it manifested itself into an aim - that of an inquiry into the idea of the 'gestalt'; i.e., what can happen when a sole-person is responsible for the writing/recording of each song, in addition to the composition and production of the 'appropriate' films, videos, and visuals for these sounds and words.
On a much more practical level, the project has has also been a catalyst for me (out of necessity) to learn more about the technical aspects of music-making; those elements which I had been a bit sheltered from in other projects – like production, recording, and even just a platform to work on my musicianship, and composition.
SERIES 1 -
As of 2015, Waiting Space is working on its first 'Series' - a twelve number song & film/short collection, in a series titled 'Genius Loci'. The twelve pieces will focus on the themes of spirit of place; sense of belonging; mobility; travel; and the diaspora.
