Drawing on the strong tradition of free improvisation (spontaneous music) which London is renowned for throughout the world, Blanca recorded short duets with each of the musicians. The players chosen are skilled and experienced, but with very different approaches. Her presence on each track will give the resulting recording a unity, and everything recorded in one day. The musicians are Leafcutter John, Terry Day, John Butcher, Benedict Taylor, Matthias Kispert, Aneek Thapar, Steve Beresford, Sharon Gal, and Hyelim Kim. The album has been mixed and mastered by Dave Hunt. Blanca Regina is an artist, curator, and tutor based in London who is currently involved in creating audiovisual performances, sound works, multimedia installations, photography and book arts. Blanca has built up strong musical relationships with a variety of musicians since she moved to London in 2011. The vibrancy of the music scene in the city was a major attraction.
