The TPP CD Collection features predominantly Melbourne based composer/performers, in an extraordinary variety of improvised music events concentrating on what David coined in 1993, “Spontaneously Performed Interactive Composition”.
Most TPP recording and all TPP production and design is undertaken by David
REN WALTERS Site www.renwalters.com
Younger by two decades. Ren worked hand-in-glove with me in the 90’s. Our combined CD recording and productions of the Melbourne communities of improvised composers extend into the hundreds; comprising an extraordinary archive. To date, however, only the NMIT Library has purchased an almost complete title list. http://davidtolley.net/category/av-production/cd-dvd-catalogs/ During his 1990’s pursuits as a bandleader in the jazz-rock idiom, Ren went through a painful period, questioning of the idiomatic aspects of this music in favour of concerns with artistic context. It was a deep routed, pardigm shift for which I felt partly responsible in terms of influence but pleased to have been available to offer encouragement and contribution. Ren will testify to the sheer joy that he, Dur-é Dara and I have experienced (as THAT) once obligations to comtext had been released. Our archive of THAT recordings bears witness to this. Our duo work has extended over this time and has undergone constant change as we have progressed through a wide range of improvising experiences together. From the beginning it has been totally free of genre attachments in a field of interaction that bears no liking to any other I have experienced. And it continues.
