Gorgeous record. Mastered by David Crawford. Front cover photography by Spencer A Richards. In artistic terms, it was a shocking statement from Phil Minton and Roger Turner which scared a lot of people.
Now, years later, the recording sounds as if it has been recorded today. It has not lost any of its artistic qualities and stood the test of time. The work of great originality and integrity. And it would take a fertile imagination for one to reconcile the duo's rendition of Monk's "'Round About Midnight with the original, for example.
Armed with boyish enthusiasm, the artists pursue a wanton spirit through their surrealistic game plan. Of course, British freestyle vocalist Phil Minton is a well-known improviser since the advent of this date with his fellow countryman, percussionist Roger Turner.
But this recording still resides as an attention-grabbing document. And indeed the strongest impression of this music is its urgency. Cliched reflections about the tormented Russian anima are almost unavoidable, but the fact is that music has great immediacy for people in times of crisis; I have seen it in such unromantic settings as an RAF base on the eve of the Falklands gambit.
This urgency is what compels Vyacheslav Ganelin piano, various instrumentsVladimir Tarasov percussion and Vladimir Chekasin saxes, various to free improvisations of sustained focus and intensity at live sets recorded in Leningrad and West Berlin. The latter appearance greatly impressed the Western critics, and the music stands up well. These men are playing for their lives, and have no time to worry about whether this or that transition might be difficult.
As a result potential pitfalls vanish into thin air as they achieve a kind Passage D. E. - Jon Hassell - Power Spot (Cassette mobility rare outside of Sun Ra and a freedom that must have been sweet indeed. Part 2 recorded live in West Berlin, October 29, Tapes remastered by Alan Moseley. Special thanks to Liz Trott for smuggling out the tapes.
This record of zany duets is among Eugene Chadbourne's wildest and dearest recordings, featuring selections from over two decades. These duets with Han Bennink, Derek Bailey, the late Charles Tyler, John Zorn, and others, showcase the woolliest side of Chadbourne's woolly playing and his dodging all over the musical and historical map. The first track is an acoustic version of John Lee Hooker's "Whiskey and Women," accompanied by Bennink playing a pizza box with brushes, a giant bass autoharp played with drumsticks, and, of course, a drum kit.
Chadbourne plays the tune straight for him at the beginning, even getting all the words right, but then veers off his National Steel onto a "communist" five-string banjo, and he and Bennink run the course, carrying the off-meter bar blues as off-world as they can go, laughing all the way. Next up is Derek Bailey and Chadbourne on two selections. Bailey's guitar and Chadbourne's electric rake and electrified banjo trip and slip all over one another here, with respect and purpose, of course, but nonetheless sloppily.
It's a rousing series of musical maneuvers at over nine minutes. When Bennink and Chadbourne reunite, it's a darker, more percussive show: feedback from rhythm and lead instruments becomes the M. And it's quite beautiful, as Gershwin's songbook comes through as the melodic framework for the improvisation. The work with Tyler, "In Between Comme C and Come Saw," is balls-out space improv, though the master saxist uses his baritone in striking ways not usually becoming of the instrument itself.
It becomes a kind of clogged, scraped, razor-voiced bell in the tower of noise. Tyler draws microtones out of the instrument we have literally never heard before, and Chadbourne is content to lend idiomatic support to this gracious unfolding.
This is more in line with Zorn's Classic Guide to Strategy than anything else, in both spirit and execution -- though there are no duck calls credited on this recording. There is space here, sometimes long periods of it, where what is happening between the pair is not readily apparent; there is plenty of trickery and tomfoolery as well, leaving the listener guffawing in more than a few places. Quick intuition, a broad dynamic spectrum, and dazzling tonal colors.

His sonic version of perpetual motion turns up in many dimensions at once - timbral, rhythmic, gestural, melodic, rhetorical, dramatic, and much more - so that playing with Bert often becomes a matter of finding, somewhere, a sound that he isn't playing at the moment, a sound that you can grab onto as a life preserver to save you from getting smoked right out the room.

Over the last decade Hopkins has distinguished himself as master of multiple musical forms including bent song, freeform concrete, improvised electronics and techno. Under his own name he has produced a most singular take on abstracted voice, feedback, field recordings and found sounds.
With Blue-Lit Half Breath Hopkins furthers his domestic enquiry into subconscious sounds with a series of vignettes that hover from hissing clunk, atmospheric creep to improvised piano refrains. Amongst all this the voice of Hopkins appears throughout as a shadowy narrator delightfully disturbing the sonic play.
Penultimate Press is proud to release their official debut LP Chiltern. Comprised of individual tracks folded into two side long suites Chiltern is an unique excursion through foreign encounters, warm surrounds and disorientating comfort.
Field recordings, electronics, samples, guitars, voice and atmospherics all contribute to form a bewitching whole. Many questions are raised: Is this a soundtrack to a mental experience or an altered take on a familiar reality? Is section 3 based around the sound of a basketball court? Does section 4 comprise a song?
Where do the original soviet science fiction soundtracks fit into all this? Is this sound or music? Simultaneously ambiguous and accessible Chiltern is a ride unlike another and resides as the consciousness tickling release of Crooked Dances is a melancholic, playful journey rooted firmly in the real. Second in a series of two previously unreleased soundtracks Henning Christiansen made for the films made by his partner and collaborator Ursula Reuter Christiansen.
It takes a certain amount of confidence for a musician to stand alone on a stage or in a recording studio and play an instrument. One of the few masters of jazz reed instruments, Joe McPhee still proceeds to make music as if for the first time.
He is a master of the instruments he plays because, like an athlete, he maintains the physical chops as well as an openness to the application of the musical vocabulary he has cultivated over time. And, for this performance, he chose to play two instruments rather than one: the alto sax and alto clarinet. Old Eyes for Ornette Coleman - Take The V Train - Side one comprises Metzger's public debut on his modified banjo, recorded in at a former church-turned-underground art space in Minneapolis.
One of his most memorable compositions, 'After Milo' later turned up as an untitled improvisation on his CD for the Chairkickers label. Jumping ahead six years and several more banjo alterations later to side two, the glittering 'Orans' gets a workout at a memorial show for the artist Matt Zaun. As an acknowledgment of the occasion, Metzger also gave a one-time-only performance -- 'Dark Green Water' -- on another of his mutant instruments: an acoustic guitar with the body drilled out to accommodate a cymbal set into its face, and ten assorted strings of varying lengths laid over the top, giving it a particularly metallic and dissonant sound.
After Milo - Dark Green Water - A followup to Marches Of The New WorldAntarctica is made up of two side-long excursions into monolithic drone-rock.
It sounded so warm that it was like embers from a bonfire. The textures are raw, Album) sound hypnotic, the effect nicely time-stopping. Bianchi, Blow Up. But for this one moment back intheir paths crossed with bandmates Popkin and Munves, and the results were frighteningly intense. As if you actually knew, Dissipated Face were a hot trio that was romping through the post-fun era of NYC rock back when they laid these sides down at CBGB on July 31st ofand their mix of everything from free jazz and late-seventies avant-prog to punk rock made for some of the wildest mergings of the form since Red Transistor.
Why was this not known of before? Bungle or whatever it was that destroyed the musical parameters previously established by your brain. Sick Pettibon cover art too. Eat it or beat it! Punk rock, prog, free jazz, funk, modern composition and Downtown art scum were all part of the landscape and exactly what went into their melting pot.
The guest appearance of alto saxophonist Daniel Carter on these four archival cuts recorded live at CBGB in adds an extra dose of fire to the proceedings. Joining the ranks of such landmark records as Tenor, Graphics, and As Serious As Your Life, Everything Happens For A Reason is an unadorned showcase of this influential pioneer in the world of creative improvised music.
Mythos - Vieux Carre - Come Sunday - Everything Happens For A Reason - J2 - Voices - At age 78, Joe McPhee shows no sign of slowing down. Cover art by Judith Lindbloom. On 35mm, the studio debut of his newest ensemble, The Frame Quartet, Vandermark reveals his longstanding debt to cinema, not only in name, but in approach. Filmmaking is an intensely collaborative medium, and The Frame Quartet embraces this concept implicitly; Vandermark is the sole writer, yet each of the album's five compositions is conducted by a different member of the quartet, except for "M.
Eschewing conventional forms, these labyrinthine structures transition suddenly between modes, emulating cinema's narrative flow with dramatic shifts in tone that parallel the sudden splice cuts found in celluloid editing. Bringing these episodic works to life are some of Chicago's most resourceful improvisers, including cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, bassist Nate McBride, and drummer Tim Daisy—all veterans of Vandermark's numerous ensembles. Utilizing an array of Passage D. E. - Jon Hassell - Power Spot (Cassette, electronic EFX, Longberg-Holm veers from austere acoustic cadenzas to amplified torrents of coruscating feedback.
McBride alternates between upright and electric bass, while Vandermark reserves his clarinet for introspective moments, unfurling burly, pneumatic cadences on tenor saxophone elsewhere. At Molde is a recording that could narrate all the accumulated experience and the communicative capability of this ensemble; a decade of genuine artistic effort by the Tentet from Chicago.
That's no small feat considering that its members work in lot of other combinations. Assembled in by reedman Ken Vandermark specifically for his recording project Standards Quinnahthe group forged an instant bond that mandated further investigation. Drummer Hamid Drake never fails to provide a spark and when he and bassist Kent Kessler get on the good foot you can expect a bonfire. Where many free groups avoid funky swinging or melodic materials DKV eagerly embraces them.
The trio's open-ended, sometimes set-length improvisations unfold in sections: Drake and Kessler might set up a cyclical groove for Vandermark to dive into or soar above, then an insistent bass clarinet ostinato might free up the bassist to take one of his superb arco solos after which Drake might suddenly kick out a Max Roach high hat jam or hit the ground running with some infectious Afro-pop polyrhythms or reggae snare-centricity.
All three players are respectful listeners cresting space and letting the music breathe but challenging each other as well. Kessler benefits greatly from this simultaneous relaxation and prodding, turning in consistently original performances. And Vandermark, already well-known as a firebrand, is quickly emerging as one of the finest young balladeers to tote a tenor. This selling allows him ample room to dip deep into both bags.
Each time out DKV invents a new context where daring exploration and pure corporeal pleasure shake hands and get down to business.
The rhythm section consists of perennial Vandermark bassist collaborator Kent Kessler and Steve Hunt on drums. A thorough and exciting statement about where this trio was then and is heading now.

Better a Bird Than a Cow Human Fact Giuffre A Letter From the Past The Bitter The Better The Longer The Lieber Birds of the Underworld Waiting For the Dancing Bear A Dyed String Hellpig Zipper Backwards Dark Cloud Blues Blue Stone Hardline Drawing Rat Bag Hard to Believe But Good to Know Vandermark dedicates one work to Derek Bailey, and one to Misha Mengelberg.
Beautifully balanced work that alternately relaxes and incites the listener. On Foreground Music they are found in the intimacy of a duo, sharing song-writing responsibilities. Vandermark wrote all new music for the collaboration and sticks to tenor saxophone and clarinet. The opportunity to hear him in subtle dialogue with a pianist is intriguing.
None of the usual bombast is here and even Vandermark's pieces seem geared towards the understated. Contemporary composition crossed with experimental song and improvisation from onwards.
Drums are almost entirely absent, making way for a braiding of soaring machine melodies, and taut harmonic threads. To be clear: this is Passage D. E. - Jon Hassell - Power Spot (Cassette ambient record.
No drifty clouds, no cocoons, no sonic platitudes. Recorded in Rotterdam in Augustamidst an immersion in the history of clairaudience, scrying, and natural philosophy, '' is a leap into pinpoint mysticism, with Bass Clef as happy alchemist. Mastered by Stephen Bishop. The EP collects 5 pieces composed by Laurie and then co-edited and performed with Olly. The former plays keys, tape player, and samples, the latter cello with effects. Both sing. Here is grazed, contorted classicism, here post-binge hallucinations, here gunky funk.
I find that really satisfying. It looks really spidery and architectural on the page. Artwork by Laurie Tompkins and Suze Whaites. Blooms of arpeggiations and desolate strums re-inflect slow-moving pitch sequences; the music feels at once on fire and graceful, inevitable.
The LP tours with visuals from Suze Whaites. Mastered by Joe Talia. Artwork by Suze Whaites. Her compositions are lingering streams: barely-shackled attacks give way to introspective arpeggiations before resurging again, all spurred on by a yearning, nervous energy. This unhinged collection of live acoustic takes no amps, no overdubs marries rasping grit and mesmeric repetition, and announces the arrival of a precocious instrumental talent.
Otto is a double bass player living in Manchester, interested in improvisation, experimental and contemporary music. He is a core component of caustic psych outfit Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, and of Manchester's ever-blooming underground. John Butcher and Joe McPhee had never shared a stage before which ended up being an attentive collaboration, starting with a long duo, alternating solo performances, and closing the atmospheric set with another duo.
Each performer invited the desert into their sound, giving the listener the feel of sand between our toes and the visual of sage brush rolling by.
The very first — never released — recordings of the Schlippenbach Trio. It hardly sounds like a first recording, because they come out of the gate with almost telepathic unity on "Deals" which is a continuous collective improvisation lasting over thirty eight minutes. The musicians show an amazing degree of stamina considering that the music is played with a very exciting degree of high energy. While each of these musicians were well on their way to developing their own unique original sounds, Schlippenbach displays a fascinating degree of classical technique filtered through the funhouse fractals of Thelonious Monk's music and Evan Parker's love of John Coltrane is evident.
A comparison for Paul Lovens escapes me, but perhaps the fast fleet form of Andrew Cryille or Sunny Murray would be apt. There is quite a bit of dynamism at play as well, the musicians throttle through different speeds and dissolve into solos and duos as the joyride plows onward. Far from exhausted, there are three more shorter improvisations: "Village", "With Forks and Hopes" and then appropriately "Then, Silence.
This was a very enjoyable album, quite exiting in the rough and tumble way that I enjoy, since I often lose my way listening to very quiet and abstract music. This is a must for fans of European free improvisation and is quite interesting in that it shows where the heralded trio got its start.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Martin Siewert. European music collective born in Stockholm in and currently based in Berlin and Paris. New free music and old repertoires re-imagined.
After meticulous historical research and recording transcriptions, Pierre-Antoine Badaroux and his orchestra built a new repertoire based on the work of European musicians who discovered and took over jazz - specifically between These tracks give us a take on the story of the birth of jazz in this new territory at a very special time, and brings to life a music that made history. Mixed and mastered by Ken Yoshida. The disc covers the yearswhen Corner, just back from Europe, took an extensive part in the New York Fluxus scene, and started to experiment with graphic notations, indeterminacy, performance pieces and happenings.
A dash through European creative music. A round trip, Berlin — Oxford, via Paris. Acoustically, the trio creates abstract forms close of written contemporary music with sounds reminding us of traditional jazz trios. The groove which appears in this music is dense, extreme but always quiet.
Music in a continuous flow of high voltage charges. Grip, Denzler and Johansson, respectively in their early thirties, early fifties and early seventies, found each other through the intertwining scenes between Paris and Berlin. When taking a look at their previous musical activities you will get an exquisite account of the contemporary history of experimental improvised musics yes, plural! It is a dense heritage in service of forming a new model for a creative process.
First there was an idea of the music, then there was the band. Our language is individually different and slowly changing, therefore we have something to say when we play. We are common in being different. A common thought is sometimes more reducing than a dissident. Anyway, without tension or friction, no music. In my music these opposing elements are of great importance. The questions of our age-differencies are not so interesting for me. It is more of an obvious and natural fact. What is more sad, maybe, is that not so many musicians today work across the invisible generational borders.
Mastered by Werner Dafeldecker. Cover design by Teresa Iten. Notes by Bastian Zimmermann. Produced with the support from The Swedish Art Council. Their music evokes questions on swing: how it is heard today and fed back to us historically. The musicians develop jazz as a form of instant composition, with the energy of not only the blues but also bebop, and in the classical hierarchy of a rhythm section consisting of double bass and drums.
Their music is striving towards a common somewhere asserting their differing assumptions and expectations. Liner notes in german and english by Bastian Zimmermann. One of the best records of for sure. Four of the most idiosyncratic and creative voices at the margins of jazz, imagine their way into and around the music and philosophy of Ahmed Abdul-Malik.
This is music to listen, dance and think to. A new jazz record, from a new jazz band. They excavate, re-inhabit and use a-new the now overlooked documents, and fragmentary plans, of his midth century synthetic vision to produce a new jazz imagination for the 21st century.
Ahmed-Malik was a NYC bassist, oudist, composer, educator and philosopher. A potent ial influence on Coltrane and Monk we imaginehe was also a significant composer in his own right. Ignored into creative obscurity, he spent his final decades teaching, and performing seldom. His albums Jazz Sahara and East Meets West fuse aspects of Arabic and East African musics and thought, his committed long-term relationship with Sufi Islam, and then-modern jazz and thinking — in revolutionary and vital ways.
The product is exciting, radical, raw, and beautiful. He mixed sounds and ethics, meanings and beliefs in open, experimental ways without dogma. And so do [Ahmed]. They visit and re think his compositions and the process potential in them. They play the notes, but use them, and the ideas in and about them, as vehicles for their unique imaginations, instrumental approaches and ideas. Through his compositions they re-imagine and re-synthesize, moving from what they know into newly creative space.
Cambridge: Harvard University Press: talks about this in his brief but fascinating study. Mixed at Studio Produced by Joel Grip and Seymour Wright. Sleeve notes by Robert Levin. They are also a list that shows how the piece gets from a beginning to an end. It is, in a sense, a cycle not simply a collection of pieces - a cycle which begins, makes a journey and ends at a different place. TA: If I had to categorize this list of words, it seems to me they are addressed to quite different areas.
Herzeleid Heartbreak for example, sounds old-fashioned, Einsamkeitsmangel Lack of Loneliness almost sounds like a neologism, as do Halbschlafphantasie, Half-Sleep Fantasy Sehnsuchtslandschaft Landscape of LongingVergessenheitsvogel Bird of Oblivion. Did you, as you compiled this list, consider these categories?
Or did you tell yourself a story that made these words necessary? JF: I was thinking in categories. At first I really wanted to make an even more rigid sequence. As it now stands, with the long words at the end and the short words in the middle, you can still feel a little of this structure; also at the beginning, which has many words with "e" and "ei". However, now it is not so strict.
The words developed lives of their own, and this displaced some of the original structure. Some are everyday words, others are made by combining words, and some words found individual paths into the piece, including some very personal things.
Revisiting that encounter with tough love might be good preparation for the testing experience of listening to flautist Antoine Beuger on this stark and protracted new release. The flute player often seems to have become absorbed by some private ritual, meandering in quiet introspection, picking over simple phrases at considerable length, all the while grappling with the task of kissing time set out in the title. Besando El Tiempo 7. Besando El Tiempo 9. Coproduced by Antoine Berger and Hessischer Rudfunk.
Three works - two for large ensembles of performers on sax, guitar, clarinet, voice, percussion, horn, flute, vibes, and objects that belie the size of the group in its fragile presences, with a shorter trio of Frey, Greg Stuart and Erik Carlson transitioning the large pieces; compositions conceived as both short presences within abundant orchestration.
We tend to connect the aspect of structure with safety and stability;the ephemeral, in contrast, in something uncertain and fleeting, something not easy to grasp. From the instrumentation alone, you get the idea that you're going to be experiencing, among other things, some rich drone-oriented music and yes, that's one aspect of 'euhesma, '.
Euhesma, incidentally, is a genus of bee and one wonders whether at least part of the piece is a meditation on that species' apparent decline in the world. Hear it. Fading sound is the link between life and art; between perception in daily life and perception while performing, while composing. And the awareness of fading sound may become the awareness of presence. I am pianist and — in addition — organist. As organist I never forget that the organ is a wind-instrument.
There is hardly anything you may hear in the church. The organ releases as a jewel each single sound; each stream of air; each noise: disappearing into the space of the hall. All sound, all streams of air and noises are quiet; sometimes hardly recognizable. The sound of music; the noise of music; the sound and noise of everyday life: they cut into each other. Both sound and noise of music do not depend on silence as with a piece of music. Both sound and noise do not need any silent location: they are quiet themselves; their quietness creates silent rooms, which welcome all sounds.
It is organ the machine and human beings working together. Man cannot breathe sounds of almost eternal duration; but the organ must not be considered a machine. My pieces for organ require the player: moving the keys; make the winds stream.
Sounds, wind, noises of the organ as a wind-instrument and the silence at sacred spaces: not a coincidence. Astute solo percussion! Solo percussion as dialectics, as the hyphen in the track title suggests. Performed and recorded by Enrico Malatesta, August Skin instruments and metal objects. CAGE began as a loose collective of musicians surrounding Cornell University inincluding faculty, students, and community members interested in improvisation and experimentation with sound.
Miller on sculptures by Harry Bertoia in the collection of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University. Recorded in the Museum in August by Kevin Ernste. Mixed and mastered by Kevin Ernste and Tim Feeney.
He treats his percussion setup as a friction instrument, using bows, scrapers, and rosined drumheads to capture and amplify frequencies that go unheard when an object is struck with a traditional mallet. He supplements this acoustic console with an electronic instrument, arranged from mixers, contact microphones, and effects pedals, that synthesizes and alters the spectral characteristics of low-fidelity tones, feedback, and noise.
This brings a sense of multiple discrete layers to the composition, with each section comprised of a number of interlocking parts — an orchestration that fits well with the audio-visual immersion conjured by the project as a whole.
Performed and recorded by Sarah Hennies, Although the two artists are primarily known for their attachments to a particular instrument guitar for Bonvalet, saxaphone for Guionnetthese instruments are only recognisably audible towards the end of the album, with the majority of sounds belonging to the percussive and analogue-electronic domains.
The album has a roughness and warmth to its timbres that is very appealing. Ideas unfold at a steady pace, not remaining static but not rushing anywhere either — a pleasure in sounds, but also in their organisation. Only very rarely, such as on the last track, does the music slide into stock free improvisationish territory, competently done but already explored.
Not only can each player be heard by himself and in shifting combinations - duet, trio or quartet - with the others, but the progression in mood and approach across an entire evening can be clearly appreciated.
