Hi, folks:

Some exciting news this time. First of all, for those of you who live in Japan (or will be in Osaka in August) there is an opportunity to attend David Cross' solo performance at cafe "Raku" (Osaka) on 10th August, 2004.

The official David Cross web-site was redesigned and looks much better than before. It also became more informative, you can use http://www.noisy.co.uk or http://www.david-cross.com to visit the site.

The long awaited new album "Book Of Songs" is ready, you can download a snippet of one of David's favorite tracks from the album Awful Love. Look forward for Noisy 003 soon.

David Cross also recorded about 40 minutes of violin music, which, according to him, is starting to sound like his first solo album. Some tracks are just solo violin, and others are multi-tracked with other parts he devised on violin or keyboard. This is a clip from 175 drums.

David recorded a couple of tracks with Japanese 'No Boundaries' singer/pianist Naomi Maki. This is a sample of their first attempt at voice, piano and violin, Mike joins us.

David is trying to make some time for some performances and workshops from September 2004 onwards. If you are interested in booking any of the following please email him with the details.

Solo performances on electric violin are planned. Exploring a wide range of musical areas, from meditative, as in Ebbs and Flows to rock, as in this track Turnover. Also the David Cross band with the addition of keyboard player Alex Hall will do several performances till the end of the year. The group performs music from the new album plus highlights from previous David Cross Band CDs, including the outrageous Tonk. David also intends to do some improvisation workshops. He describes them as "one day workshops for musicians from any discipline leading to a public performance in the evening".
