in my quest to bring you, the customer, the most osbscure items in a narrow range of out-sound tactics (amongs the greater scale: conceptual guitar-sound etudes) i came across this disc (well.. i bought a copy of this from rafael when he blew through town a few weeks back). lineup is something to die for in regards to contemporary out-guitar (sem)antics. most (bordering on all) pieces are extended, unreleased forays into the unknown far-reaches of space.
especially nice outings from mr. ambarchi (possibly the last of the stacte variations, and one of the most engaging pieces in his entire gimundo oeuvre) and mr. toral (a 20+ minute bleep-epic verging on near-quietude). controlled coelacanth-removal radiation from mr. ranaldo (hazy scrunge-fest with much echoplexation). plus songs from mr. youngs (bright, acoustic folk-sounding ditty, mildly off-place here) and grubbs (well, more of a kind of restrained volume-pedal improv than a proper song per s). and an ebow bit from franz de waard.
first release on a fresh, young japanese label. all-star lineup. green grass and cows on the cover... [Mimaroglu]
