The Grand Gestures is a collaborative project led by Jan Burnett of Spare Snare. Their first album, which is due out in May 2012, features contributions.

The music was written by Rick, and is influenced by his love of dusty 12″ vinyl, synth duos and electronica. Vocal tracks were then created by the different collaborators. These were recorded without computers on a stand-alone 16-track recorder in Rick’s bathroom, with reverb of the tiles adding to the overall sound, and at the same time giving a nod to Deen.
