Kim Salmon Official says
Kim Salmon launches My Script at Mojos Bar with special guests The Rosemary Beads, and Todd Pickett.

The process of recording this truly 'solo' album has been nothing like my previous releases.

Myles Mumford produced this album. It wouldn’t have happened, or at least happened the way it did, if it were not for him. I met him a while back when he was the producing The Key of Sea volume II to benefit the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and Human Rights Arts and Film Festival.

I collaborated with political commentator and media star Waleed Aly on Client JGT683, one of the tracks which I've included on the album. Myles looked me up about a year later proposing we work together on an album. We met and I played him a bunch of sketches. He immediately had ideas about them and importantly they were ideas I liked!

Myles and I began this project by picking a piece I’d been developing in which I use the sound produced by holding my thumb over the end of an unplugged lead connected to an amplifier turned up loud as accompaniment to my vocals. He took great care to make optimum use of recording techniques for me to render the idea under his sympathetic direction.

The results were surprisingly accessible. This has been the approach all along. i.e. go with whatever idea I’ve had and take it where I could. It was decided early on that this could be done with very little involvement from other musicians to bring its inherent compromises to a minimum. There is only a small use of a rhythm section for a couple of the tracks. This album has been orchestrated for the larger part with me playing whatever was needed eg, ‘drum loop’ Dictaphone with a ‘string section’ loop, or an smartphone 808 APP.

If I were to ‘conceptualize’ this album I would say I have metaphorically put myself on the couch and made the world my analyst. However if I’m honest that is an after-the-fact reading of the situation. All I have done with this record is just make music and write songs without any criteria other than ‘do I like this idea?’ and “does it sound good?” I’ve never really done that.
