about

The fifth album from New Zealand free improvisation trio of Mike Kingston, Simon Sweetman and Dave Edwards… with a sound that swerves from acoustic folk/blues with hints of Asian, Celtic and Balkan influences, to electroacoustic soundscapes, abstract dissonance and pots & pans percussion.

First formed on winter solstice day 2003 in Wellington, The Winter is our longest running side-project. The title ‘Exit Points’ refers to a discussion we had about knowing when to finish an improvisation when it reaches a natural exit point… and when to carry on playing to discover something new…
