Our good friend and close collaborator Tullis Rennie (you can hear him on the Beats & Pieces Big Band remixes as well) has totally reinvented three tracks from HAQ’s debut album ‘Walking Walking Falling’ for a download-only EP entitled ‘In Free Fall‘ – listen/buy below or via our online shop. To perfectly compliment the music, there’s also some brand new artwork by Angela Guyton.
Tullis has been mangling sound through his laptop for years, a lot of the results of which can be found on the Concrete Moniker label. Of particular Efpi-related interest is this improv trio with Anton from HAQ, and his newest project The Electronic Exchange, a collaboration with singer Najia Baji, who was recently spotted guesting with the Beats & Pieces Big Band.

Anton and Ben have just returned from a couple of gigs as part of a free improv ‘supergroup’ – bringing together Concrete Moniker‘s findlay_hunter_rennie and cottrell/findlay/hunter. Also playing at the gigs were Moniker’s newest project, The Electronic Exchange, to perform live for the first time music that had been conceived electronically thousands of miles apart by Tullis Rennie in Barcelona and Najia Bagi in Manchester. Check out their new EP, its ace… All photos below were taken by Phil Richards at the Wirksworth Festival.

First up on the grand Beats & Pieces remix project is Tullis Rennie, trombonist and laptop musician extraordinaire now resident in sunny Barcelona, who has taken on the final track of the EP, ‘broken’. You may be familiar with his BCN_ep which is available on the Concrete Moniker label, and he is also responsible for the vocal manipulation that you can make out on the EP track itself.
