Songs disguised as demos: ‘Coloured Sketches’

In News on September 22, 2013 at 11:43 pm

Coloured SketchesColoured Sketches is the third installation of Demonstrations from Kaleb Hikele, also known by his birth name The Sun Harmonic.

New songs are available now on a handmade CD- include the standard version (11 songs + a B-Side) when you buy discs from the Moon Melody Suitcase Record Shop.

The practice started in 2011 to capture off-the-floor demos of his unreleased songs- this collection moves from Demonstration #39 forward to #57. While Kaleb Hikele turned his home studio into a sound construction zone, city construction workers made noise outside installing new shingles on the rooftop. Inside of The Townhouse, Kaleb ran through improvisational performances of his latest songs, travelling from the piano to the electric guitar to the acoustic guitar before disarray led to shutting off the microphones at 4:30 a.m. on August 31st. He finished recording the to-do list of 19 tunes in the basement on the afternoon of September 2nd and titled the new batch of music ‘Coloured Sketches’.

Please enjoy his musical expression offered to you and thanks for listening.
