deas String Studies (LP, £14.25)label: Alter
Deas is the alias of London based guitarist Cameron Deas. 'String Studies' is unlike anything else recorded previously by Deas and is his first LP of all electronic based material. Recorded at home between February and March of 2014, the 8 pieces on this LP were recorded live with little or no overdubs using Deas' 12 string acoustic guitar as a sampling source to trigger and in turn be manipulated by a modular system. The immaculate production and scalpel sharp twists and turns found within the music display a remarkable level of confidence and intuition in Deas's new process, which makes it difficult to believe that this is his first documented work within the electronic medium. Mastered by John Hannon at No Recording Studio. Popular feedback / questions from Deas' recent European tour: "Why don't you play the guitar? I thought it was a guitar concert, I'm disappointed." "Do you live in Berlin/Why do you not live in Berlin?" "How did you come up with the name "Cameron Dee-az"?"
