In 2018 I landed in Amsterdam to start a Europe Tour. The venue could not find a hotel for me, so I asked Gilbert, who invited me to stay in his guest room. I felt at home when I saw what was on Gilbert's table/mind (picture). the book 'Shantaram', double reed flute photo, Saravah... (as a friend of Pierre Barouh, I had visited Saravah where I met Jack Higelin in the 70s). Gilbert and I exchanged many ideas, and I invited him to record at my place in Australia. He did, and here is the result!  I am thrilled that the words issued from my Head Noise are highlighted by the arrangements co created with Gilbert - also the sheer genius of I:Cube to polish our gems has a lot to do with that!
Enjoy your listening experience!

En 2018 j'ai atterri a Amsterdam pour une tournée Européenne... pas d'hotel de libre donc j'ai appelé Gilbert qui m'a gentiment invité dans sa chambre d'ami.  Sur sa table, j'ai vu que Gilbert s'intéressait aux memes sources que moi: Le livre Shantaram, une flute double, Saravah... (etant ami de Pierre barouh j'avais visite les studios ou je rencontrais Jack Higelin durant les annees  70s). J'ai invite Gilbert Cohen a venir enregistrer chez moi en Australie... voici le resultat! Je suis ravi que les mots sortis de mes Bruits de Tete soient ainsi mis en valeur par les arrangements co-crees avec Gilbert - et aussi le genie de I:Cube a polir nos gemmes y est pour quelque chose!
Bonne ecoute!
