Pulco

1998 - 2017

When Derrero took a break I continued to compose music that centred around conventional arrangements but it was the pallet of sounds that I had first developed in my teens that returned to me and interested  me the most. Cheap instruments found sound and noise mixed with ambient spill creating a sonic like autobiography.

 

I had a clear idea that I wanted to develop a new music for myself with a simple minimal approach and to look beyond the traditional use of the guitar for something new to say.

 

To be able to develop this new musical language I had to deconstruct a lot of what I had learnt in my 20's in order to try and understand the guitar in a different way. The process involved pulling apart the conventional idea of a verse/chorus structure in song writing and finally abandoning general structure altogether. I began to favour using the recording process to collage sections of sound together which then developed into the desire to freely improvise those sections then finally into just pure improvisation.
