about

Some years ago the guys at the Auricle Music label suggested CC did an electronic album bringing in various influences they knew that they shared with him - Terje Rypdal, and Terry Riley were two examples. The arrival of the theremin in CC's armoury was another catalyst.

Scanning Planet 3 became a gathering of his favourite sounds, both from the instruments, but also including sounds taken from the world around him. The loose theme was exploration of a world (possibly Earth) and recording was something of a voyage of exploration for Chris too, as he was discovering new things and new ways of working.

What the Auricle label said about Scanning Planet 3
"Chris has been promising us a "cosmic" album for some 10+ years, and at long last, here it is in the form of SCANNING PLANET 3, a vast cosmic opus, with synths, theremin & guitar, lots of electroacoustic elements, melodic yet elusive & thoroughly creative, hints of Terry Riley, The Rain Garden, Terje Rypdal, etc. Chris has "scanned planet 3" i.e. Earth, and come up with a vast cosmic vision, a work that explores new and unexplored territory, and created an album that is unique."

CC is very fond of this epic album. It was a voyage of discovery for him and was a very personal album in the selection of sounds.
