Solo percussion from Matchless founder, Mr. Eddie Prévost
"Alone in the studio, it is just me trying to breathe life into the materials I have chosen at hand. I am looking, hoping, that something unexpected will crop up. The gongs, chimes, bells, skins, strings and resonating boxes are a rich environment. You never know for sure what you will dig up. I bow, scrape, pluck and hit direct and glancing blows in my engagement with the materials with which I have to work. I might even draw blood. The point is to mix myself with this stuff. Make it something other than it seems. Make something other of myself too." - Eddie Prévost
