More Info

74 Minuten Material der AMMMUSIC-Session, die jeweils am 8. und 27. Juni 1966 stattfand. Die CD ist um zustzliches Bonusmaterial erweitert, welches aus derselben Session stammt. It allows the listener to hear prefigurations and continuities of the music which makes for a new and a more enhanced experience than the original album material. (from the booklet) Die Improvisationen von AMM schaffen lange ruhige Distanzen zwischen Eruptionen krachiger E-Gitarre und begleitend bis strend eingesetzten Transistorradios. Piano und Perkussion im Zusammenhang mit Cello, Saxophon, Akkordion und Klarinette steigern sich wellenfrmig hher und lassen die Musik urpltzlich in ruhige Passagen fallen. Es scheint, die Zeit sei stehen geblieben, whrend die Musiker kleine Punkte und schmale Linien in diesen konstanten Strom eines Stillebens zeichnen. Im Original 1967 als LP verffentlicht.
This CD contains 74 minutes of AMMMUSIC recorded on the 8th and 27th june 1966. Some unreleased material made at the same session is inclused. It allows the listener to hear prefigurations and continuities of the music which makes for a new and a more enhanced experience than the original album material. (from the booklet) Improvisation music with pretty long distances between eruptions of noise streams from electric guitar and transistor radio. Cello and percussion together with piano, saxophon, accordion and clarinet culminate in waves and suddenly remain in quiet parts. It seems the time has stopped, while the musicians are painting small dots and lines in this constant stream of a standstill. Originally released as an LP in 1967. [Peter Schlewinski for Drone Records]

Repressed. Monumental debut recording (originally issued by the Elektra recording company in far different times). "The classic first recording from 1966, with Cornelius Cardew, Eddie Prevost, Lou Gare, Keith Rowe and Lawrence Sheaf. One of the first attempts to bring Noise improvisation (radios, scraped guitars, prepared pianos) into popular culture. Essential and historic." [label info]
