BAMBOO STILTS - Beneath The Bark
Rooted in friendship and a shared love of experimental sound, Bamboo Stilts is a long time in the making... Tui ( Orla Wren ) and Leigh Toro (Flotel) have been sharing cassettes and minidiscs for two decades and have long talked of making a record together one day. After having both release their debut albums on the influential London label Expanding Records and then subsequent releases on many labels including, Arable, Cactus Island, Flau, Air Texture, Chemical Tapes and Home Normal amongst others, Tui and Leigh sat down in their respective studios in 2012 and started sending sounds and ideas back and forth, in a very short while the debut album Beneath The Bark was completed."
