Feeling a bit camera shy


Fwap was formed by Joaquin Lievano and Andy West to create a vehicle for their new music which contrasts the highly orchestrated and complex song forms they have used in their critically acclaimed band Zazen. At the same time, it is similar in aim, seeking a sense of adventure, imagination, and beauty. Fwap is creating music on the fly with minimal orchestration, employing familiar song structures, counterpoint and looping patterns that build on each other. Our goal is to explore the edges of music performance around the concepts of standard song form, rhythm and improvisation. We are finding ourselves paying tribute to our rock roots while still trying to create something new and interesting. It’s working so far...
