Alan Courtis and Aaron Moore continue their ongoing collaboration, now into its 10th year, with their latest album 2283 on Gertrude Tapes.

Courtis visited Brooklyn in September 2017 and popped round to Moore's home for a cup of tea. They decided to do some impromptu recording using a variety of toy instruments, small devices, an acoustic guitar and a hand drum, The subsequent set of minimal improvisations recorded in Moore's apartment are presented here (tracks 1-4). Courtis took the remaining improvisations back with him to Buenos Aires and created 2 collages with added instrumentation in classic Courtis style (tracks 5-6). 2283 is a masterclass of maximum miniatures.
