Charles Curtis 3CD

Charles Curtis 3CD “Performances & Recording 1998-2008” Saltern

Edition of 500. Liner notes by La Monte Young, Spencer Gerhardt, and Tashi Wada. Custom packaging and screen printing by Alan Sherry.

Saltern presents its fifth release, Charles Curtis: Performances & Recordings 1998-2018, the first comprehensive collection of recordings surveying the career of renowned, American cellist Charles Curtis. Selected by Curtis and Tashi Wada from recordings spanning the past two decades, the collection offers a broad, inclusive view of Curtis’s activities across the diverse worlds of music he inhabits, containing rare, unreleased recordings, and never-before-released music by Terry Jennings, Richard Maxfield, Éliane Radigue, Alison Knowles, and Curtis. The wide-ranging scope of this release speaks not to a musical restlessness, but to a genuine spirit of inquiry, as these areas of activity for Curtis have existed concurrently in dialogue, not simply in succession, for decades. Over two hours of music by composers and artists with whom Curtis is closely associated including Éliane Radigue, Guillaume de Machaut, Tobias Hume, Silvestro di Ganassi, Terry Jennings, Morton Feldman, Anton Webern, Olivier Messiaen, Alison Knowles, Richard Maxfield, and Curtis himself

Tolerance CDS Vanity reissues

Tolerance CD “Anonym”  Kyou records-Vanity

originally released in 1979, this official version comes in a jacket with obi, no distribution is available outside the local market. These come quite expensive but remember the recent boxsets went in a flash. No idea if this pressing is limited or not, so if you have an opportunity to get them cheaper elsewhere, do not hesitate. Strange and mythic stuff, I must say I quite enjoy the music.

Mathias Preuß is a German saxophone player active in the free improvisation scene who lives in the small city of Lemgo near the Dutch border. He plays tenor and soprano sax mostly solo but is always open for any kind of collaboration. He has participated in a free improvisation workshop in Osaka, Japan with Chie Mukai in 2018. In February 2020 he played live with drummer Ryosuke Kiyasu in Frankfurt, Germany as a duo.

COFFEE FAITH is
Spiritual Drone / Experimental project of Rio Nurkholis Syaifuddin from Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

It should be started on 30th November 2014, but after his band members didn’t show up at the gigs, he had to play solo. Using “KOTAK IBADAH” named Kyai Sengkala, Coffee Faith makes a wide range of drone, dark ambient and atmospheric compositions. Taking themes from Religious Books, Ancient Books, Nusantara’s Phillosophers, and Ancient Culture. While absorbing and acknowledging these influences, it is important to him to find and evolve his own sound.

Joji Yuasa CD Omega Point + GAP

Joji Yuasa CD “Music for film Gengitsu”  Omega Point

In 2017, Genjitsu was shown at the Kobe Planet Film Archive. It is a film created in 1966 by a director Tetsuji Takechi, known as a legend of Showa eroticism. But this film has been hidden somewhere somehow from the public for a long time. The film’s story focuses around a prostitute and has a strong fantasy literature style to it as one may have guessed from its title Genjitsu (Sun dog; an optical phenomenon that consists of a light source alongside of the Sun in rare climate condition).

 

Actually, among some music tapes that I got from Mr. Yuasa, there was indeed one with the same title. However, since the existence of the tape recording was unknown at the time, I was convinced that it wasn’t “tape music” and I left it untouched for quite a while. Hearing news of the film screening made me check what is on this tape carefully. Overall, the sounds were “prosy” with a lot of silence as well as reoccurring sounds of a prepared piano and sounds created presumably by playing inside of the piano (it is likely to have been amplified). But they were also an accumulation of experimental sounds with elements of tape music such as parallel playback with vocal pieces, delay (or tape echo) and ring modulator. In chapter 2, female jazz vocal is inserted.

According to the Kobe Planet Film Archive, the following names are included in the players list. Toshi Ichiyanagi (maybe inside play of piano), Masao Yagi (jazz piano in chapter 2), Yasukazu Amemiya (percussion).
