More Info

IF, BWANA ist seit langer Zeit das musikalische Bettigungsfeld von Al Margolis, der in den 80er das SOUND OF PIG Label betrieb (eines der grten Cassettenlabel fr experimentelle Sounds ever!), und jetzt hinter POGUS PROD. steckt. "Tripping India" enthlt drei konzeptuell & elektro-akustisch geprgte Stcke, in welchen mit Piano-Sounds, grummelnden Geruschen, effektierter Percussion und field recordings hantiert.


"Consisting of 3 compositions, TRIPPING INDIA is the 3rd IF, BWANA release on Pogus. On this recording If, Bwana is joined by, among others, Paul Marotta (Styrenes/Electric Eels/Mirrors) on 3 Out of 4 Ain't Bad, a conceptual work for 3 different pianists, playing 3 different pianos at 3 different times to the same tape. The final version is for 3 pianists, no tape. PR-DR is an electroacoustic work for processed/manipulated percussion. The title piece combines audio "snapshots" of a wandering through India with multiple tracks of manipulated and processed drums and percussion. The end result is an "audio travelogue for 2 (highly) manipulated percussionists." [label info]
