rolling (but time-stamp free) classical/jazz (free & otherwise)/improv/eai/general noise etc. thread [ferware mk. 11]]
okey-doke, here's the first couple that spring to mind (i know a lot/most fans will have heard these):
I imagine people might have heard this one, due to the Demdike State connection if nothing else, that said I remember endlessly proselytising for the debut on here, but I don't know how far that was taken on board. Reminds me of Mika Vainio stuff under the name ph in terms of its endlessly fascinating minimalism.
Suum Cuique ~ Ascetic Ideals [Modern Love]
(good cover too)
Sonore ~ OTO (Trost)
At first I struggled w/ Sonore. I think I started by watching a live video on youtube (bad idea), & while I love solo sax record by e.g. Kaoru Abe (check Winter 1972!), or obv. Braxton's For Alto, I initially struggled w/ hearing 3 reeds players simultaneously unaccompanied, yet now I'm completely obsessed, I think the fascination often comes from hearing three(+) instruments so ostensibly similar manage to create something so tonally distinct and varied and so on. It's good.
John Tilbury & Keith Rowe ~ E. E. Tension and Circumstance.
Ummm, it's hard to find too much to say about this...beyond the easily the easily-googleable backstory and the fact the kind of 'soundworld' again really fascinating. Sounds to my limited knowledge of EAI very masterful and compelling. Not nearly as familiar w/ Keith Rowe as I should be, but Tilbury never ceases to amaze (whether it's [recently] Field, Lost Daylight or his famousCage/Feldman recordings.)
My tastes aren't that contemporary (and I don't get to read The Wire anymore 'cause of money/geography btw) so i'm happy if people want to highlight anything they want to highlight:
Iannis Xenakis ~ Persepolis
Been listening to a lot of the electronic compositions, by this Greek composers. This one is (to me, at least) standardly dark and frightening, and has a really satisfying kind of progression.
