Description

Jonny Trunk has spent much of the last two decades digging into the career of now legendary British composer Basil Kirchin, a man whose unique and wide-ranging work are only now beginning to be properly recognized. Basic Kirchin Is My Friend is loosely based on a compilation CD Trunk put together for a celebration of the artist's work earlier this year, and gathers together a mixture of previously released material, unheard fare and snippets from an interview conducted months before is death in 2005. Featuring a mixture of seductive jazz, percussion experiments, easy listening smoothness, homemade field recordings, lo-fi ambient soundscapes, analogue synthesizer doodles and sultry classical style works, the compilation offers a superb introduction Kirchin's his unique sonic world.
