Kuiper

Floating Points

July 22, 2016

Since starting a band to realize the music from my LP, it has sparked a deep interest in the band itself, and so Kuiper is the result of playing with Leo, Alex and Susumu. Each time we play it, its completely different. We set the scene with electronics, and some drum machines that form the foundation to allow the unfurling of the rest of the track. The version on this EP – believe it or not – was recorded at 8am!

The other side – ‘For Marmish Part II’ – is carbon dated by my singing voice. I can’t get that high anymore! It was recorded way before ‘ For Marmish’ on the album but the two tracks happened to be written around the same time. – Sam Shepherd
