ð•   Crimson mainman Robert and ex–member David to launch album based on 1974 track.
♦  King Crimson mainman Robert Fripp and ex–member David Cross have recorded an album exploring classic track Starless.
♦  Entitled Starless Starlight, the eight–piece work is based on a melody Cross wrote for the original, which appeared on Red in 1974. Fripp recorded two improvised takes in 2006 and Cross has reworked them and added violin parts.
♦  Cross says: “It’s a piece in which we all managed to express ourselves and get our personalities across. This little theme that Starless Starlight is based on has a kind of journey, and it emerges different but still surviving. I’ve always been very impressed with that.”
♦  He continues: “Somehow the piece manages to embody some very simple ideas — quite romantic and sentimental, but at the same time angry and dark.”
♦  Starless Starlight is released via Noisy Records on May 4. Cross recently completed work on a David Cross Band album and he’s working with former Van Der Graaf Generator multi–instrumentalist David Jackson. King Crimson will tour the UK later this year:

♦  Two members of the groundbreaking mid 1970s King Crimson line–up unite on a fascinating album length exploration of a melody — composed by David Cross and Robert Fripp — that emerged as one of the key themes on the King Crimson masterpiece, Starless. The melody resurfaced in two improvisations performed and recorded by Fripp in 2006 and these recordings plus the Starless theme itself were subsequently transformed and augmented by David Cross (and co–producer Tony Lowe). A beautiful and unexpected collision of violins and Soundscapes.
