More information: Clive Mitten's first solo album 'Suite Cryptique subtitled Recomposing Twelfth Night 1978-1983' is Clive's orchestral re-imaginings of Twelfth Night music, taking themes from many of the tracks from that period and reworking them in a classical style to produce something entirely new and breathtaking.
Clive Mitten: "The two-hour album comprises cinematic orchestral recompositions of all of the material contained on the band’s three seminal albums (from the period) plus a few live favourites that never made it on to an album. It is in my “post minimalist” style. That is minimalism in the context of huge orchestral forces and big melodies, which I acknowledge is an oxymoron. The cover painting as you can probably tell is one of Geoff’s, and is one of a number of sketches he made in 1982 while we were recording the Fact & Fiction album."
