fiffdimension projects may include acoustic songs, spoken word, distorted postpunk, free jazz, gamelan, lo fi electronica, Eurasian folk music, 19th century ballads, video installations, or all or none of the above ; at other times I’ve played in groups such as The Electricka Zoo, The Winter, Ascension Band, Gamelan Taniwha Jaya, Gamelan Padhang Moncar, The Slab Septet... But for now, having come full circle to where I started off, as a solo act – So far in 2019 I’ve been living in rural New Zealand, playing mainly solo acoustic.
I recently released this lo-fi ‘official bootleg’ recorded 20 years (or half my lifetime) ago – opening for Chris Knox at Bar Bodega in Wellington NZ last millennium:

vol1 – songs, spoken word and improvisations from the early phase of my gloriously unsuccessful career
“Rough outsider folk-blues mysteries, dissonant rock textures, electric and acoustic improvisations… Edwards strikes me as one of the most overlooked musicians from the fertile lands of New Zealand and if you need a fresh start this might very well be the place.” – The Broken Face
“Experimental and avant-garde…. There is a clear passion, and a commitment to pushing the boundaries… This will challenge your perceptions of what constitutes music and open the mind to new possibilities of sounds that surround us – muzic.net.nz“
“The 20 song album covers traditional Javanese and Balinese gamelan, Asia-Pacific folk music, free jazz, and free noise…. If you have an open inquiring mind and love hearing a variety of sound, this is excellent. – muzic.net.nz“
