North Sea Radio Orchestra's Craig Fortnam has released a video for the song Gigant, which you can watch below. It's taken form his upcoming solo album, Instrumental Music 1, which will be released through Kavus Tobari's (Gong/Knifeworld) Believer's Roast label on June 17.
“I have always wanted to make an instrumental record and having written lots of songs about stuff; recent bereavements, creativity as-my-saviour-and-relentless task-master, my immediate surroundings in Wiltshire and much more, it really has been a pleasure to make this album, which really is about NOTHING AT ALL! Quite a relief," laughs Fortnam of the follow up to last year's Ark, his solo debut.
You can see the artwork and tracklisting for Instrumental Music 1 below. The all instrumental album echoes elements of Fortnam's chamber music with North Sea Radio Orchestra.
Fortnam has been releasing a download-only 'single' on each full moon for a year (Oct 21 – Sept 22), with a physical release due next year titled Songs From Lunar One.
