signalsundertests – “Axon” (2011) is a collaborative composition for 8 channel tape and live polyphonic electric guitar, written in collaboration with Michael Andrews in 2011. A stereo rendering is available at this time and a more recent version features on the most recent signalsundertests release, “Nascent.”

“Axon is a collaborative project that began life as a series of recorded guitar improvisations. These initial recordings provide the main source materials used in the fixed media element of the piece. Throughout the creative process the guitar and tape have been involved in a continual loop of mutual influence. Due to this working method we discovered that the line between the the composer and the performer became continually blurred and resulted in what we believe to be a truly collaborative piece that follows a combined creative vision. Axon was written by Michael Andrews and Ricky Graham.”

The proceeds of “Beautiful Beginning” are donated to the Motor Neurones Disease Association of Northern Ireland. Due to the few cases of MND every year in the U.K, the research is underfunded and the care services are understaffed. To date, there is no known cure. By giving generously, you are helping researchers and carers for MND throughout the UK.
