I'm in the final stages of presenting my new solo-project "No [More] Pussyfooting", a reconstruction of music from the experimental studio albums "No Pussyfooting" and "Evening Star" by Brian Eno and Robert Fripp.
In these albums from the early '70s Brian Eno blends his tape-loop experiments with Robert Fripp's rock guitar, creating unique layered soundscapes. Using contemporary technology in combination with the original “frippertronics” set-up of two reel-to-reel tape-recorders, "No [More] Pussyfooting" aims at restoring these gems of experimental repertoire, originally created in the studio, and bringing them back to the stage.
