Dream Maps launch, Kings Place, London, 14th September, 2016

kings-place-6Thank you to everyone involved in the Dream Maps album launch at Kings Place, London. To my wonderful band: Arve Henriksen (trumpet, voice), Sarah Homer (clarinet, bass clarinet), Evi Vine (voice), Emily Burridge (cello), Steven Hill (guitar), Simon Edwards (bass), Martyn Barker (drums) and to Phill Brown who did a great live mix. And thank you to everyone who came to see the event.

“Artfully mixed together with recordings of heartbeats and water by the sound engineer Phill Brown, the music washed gently but insistently over the clearly beguiled near-capacity crowd in Kings Place’s Hall 2… this was Clemo’s first live gig in 10 years; its success should encourage him. ” Richard Williams

Nick Luscombe, Late Junction, BBC Radio 3

“Meditative, trance-like stillness… symphonic ambience… echoes of… Brian Eno and David Sylvian. Miles’ Sketches of Spain reimagined by Jon Hassell”
Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise

“Mesmerising…irresistible and idiosyncratic. Within a jazz context, could even be regarded as a new kind of third stream” ****
George Farbey, All About Jazz

” I like [it] a lot”, Stephen Duffy, BBC Radio Scotland

“A brilliant lineup”, Jez Nelson, Somethin’ Else, Jazz FM

“A marvelously original piece of work transcending genres from Pink Floyd to Steve Reich.”
Bebop Spoken Here

“The level of attention to detail and the superbly realised but perfectly pitched performances by all involved make this a very superior addition to the ambient genre.”
Eddie Myer, Jazz Views
