From Isolation EP

From Isolation is a new series of collaborations organised by Trestle Records as a reaction and ‘antidote’ to the self-isolation and quarantine measures we are currently undergoing due to the Covid 19 pandemic.


The record label contacted musicians in the first lockdown of 2020 to collaborate as a trio in the making of an EP achieved through file sharing via the internet. The concept is simple – Each musician starts a track and passes it to the next for them then to add their section.


This was not intended to be a pain staking, over thought, over dubbed experience but rather one of expression, chance, reaction and mobilising our community to use this time for something new, that wouldn’t have occurred otherwise. To instigate a few days of communication and collaboration with the sole purpose of making new music, often among musicians who have not previously worked together or even actually met in person.
