James Vine, Harry Stoneham and Alun Elliott-Williams are Waldo’s Gift, the fusion trio from Bristol whith a very peculiar style.

We began to improvise whole 90 minute sets of music, trying to create something cohesive yet completely on the edge of our capabilities. We did this every week for a number of years and it formed the sound you hear in our composed EP’s ‘The Hut’ & ‘Normflex’. Our very first release aptly titled ‘Improvisations’ was a collection of these impromptu musical explorations from one night at that venue. Despite our newer material being composed we are still exploring this other side to our sound regularly.
Flowerbed and the Normflex EP were both written at the tail end of the most intense phase of the pandemic. Each of us had so much processing to do from the past year. This processing found its outlet in the creation of the music you hear on this EP; it was pure catharsis. Some of this processing found expression in pure aggression, other aspects channeled nostalgia for simpler times. That’s why half of the EP is heavy and unrelenting and the other half more exploratory and reflective.
Why thank you! Some influences: Hudson Mohawk, Aphex Twin, Sarah Davachi, Jon Hopkins, Claude Debussy, Floating Points, Nala Sinephro, Animals as Leaders, Burial.
