ORE ~ Belatedly

The album title is derived from the fact that I failed to complete this album the first time around. I started it as a gift to my father when he was diagnosed with lung cancer in late 2014. But it remained unfinished when he died eight months later. I subsequently aimed to complete it but found that too had to start the whole thing afresh. This is now ready, Belatedly.

Belatedly is a split album featuring five Native—ORE only—tracks on Side A (1/2) and five Compound—ORE and collaborator—tracks on Side B (1/2).

Side B features contributions from previous ORE collaborator Kazuyuki Kishino (KK NULL), oud player Khyam Allami, trombonist Sophie Cooper, contra-bassoonist Thomas Stone and baritone horn player Beck Baker.

I am very grateful for their contributions. Thanks also to Matt at Box Records & Graeme Hopper.

Dedicated to Mick.
