The CT Collective was started by Michael Klobuchar using cassettes (remember them?) The group members contributed music by mailing a master tape which was distributed to the members as a CD. No one got paid for any of this! I found it a great creative stimulus, creating music to fit the theme and hearing how others interpreted it.

The inspiration for this project came from my abiding fascination with birdsong. There was such interest (and discussion over group parameters!) that we decided to have a group using only the sound of birds (another CD) and another combining birds with human generated sounds, “Birds and Men”.

My track is “Pheasant Plucking” – various bird samples combined with excerpts from a live recording made at a solo gig in Norwich. Arranged and mastered using Ableton. Any Floydian influences were purely accidental
