Laurence Pike announces solo album, Distant Early Warning

Laurence Pike

For the best part of two decades, Laurence Pike has operated at the cutting edge of the electronic and jazz music worlds, releasing albums with his bands PVT (formerly Pivot), Triosk and Szun Waves, he also collaborated with Australian pianist Mike Nock on a couple of albums. On his debut solo album Distant Early Warning, he carves himself a moment of reflection.

Originally conceived as a technological and spiritual jazz suite for drums, Distant Early Warning is a series of solo performances for kit and sampler recorded live in a single day. “For a long time I’ve been feeling there’s a central part of my musical voice that didn’t have an outlet,” Pike says. “So this album is definitely a product of inner necessity.”
