Plans for 2012

Phoenix-Flare is working out plans for the year. We played lots of smaller gigs last year, which all went really well. We are excited about numerous possibilities for the future.

We would like to develop our sound and fanbase by performing some support slots in bigger clubs and venues and at some summer festivals.

We have been finishing recordings of a few of our tracks with a view to exploring the release of an E.P later this year.We are also working on new ideas to expand our sound. James has recently put a new motherboard, quad 3.2Gig Intel and 8Gig RAM into the Fernforest Studio computer as the last processor just wasn’t coping with the plugins!

For live performance we’ve changed over to using Ableton Live rather than using prepared backing tracks. This will add more of an element of improvisation and fluidity. We are also looking at adding live percussion and live bass for the larger shows.
