Peter Van Hoesen: A Swing Is Not A Throw
Peter Van Hoesen releases his latest EP, A Swing Is Not A Throw.
A Swing Is Not A Throw, released on Time To Express, is Peter Van Hoesen’s latest EP. The five track release is the indirect result of his decision in 2022 to fully focus on live shows.
This shift allowed him to create hours of new material, which he later refined and shaped into modular building blocks. These musical components were designed to be combined in various ways, allowing for real-time experimentation during his shows. Following his shows, he began the process of analysis. Whereupon he would take notes on successes and decide how to enhance the overall sound.
What we know now as A Swing Is Not A Throw is the result of six months of live material, transformed into complete tracks. Two years on from his last EP, Echoes From Westbrook Bay, A Swing Is Not A Throw is a statement on Peter Van Hoesen’s experimental nature and fluency for intricate soundscapes.
