Fred Frith - The Technology Of Tears (And Other Music for Dance) (1988) Avant-Garde (320 kbps)

Такая вот "музыка для танцев" от замечательного композитора и гитариста Фреда Фрита (я пишу тут в кавычках - а оно ведь и вправду для танцев писалось...). Диск был изначально выпущен как двойной LP, треки с четвертой стороны LP (третья часть альбома под названием Propaganda) не вошли в более позднее переиздание на CD, и сегодня мы их не услышим. На большинстве инструментов тут играет сам Фрит, помогают ему Джон Зорн, Тенко, Кристиан Марклэй и Джим Стэли.

Что пишут

"Sadness, Its Bleached Bones Behind Us," and "You Are What You Eat" are unrelenting slices of hard-edged sounds over a pulse. "The Palace of Laughter, The Technology of Tears" is an imaginative, intense, varied suite comparing music which represents the past "frozen tears" of sadness -- displayed as images before us by the media, etc. -- with the "hot tears" of the moment that cannot be absorbed by technology. "Jigsaw" and "Jigsaw Coda" (1986) creates patterns with constantly shifting accents and sub-divisions..uneven pieces to be fit together..."Propaganda" (1987) music for a theatre production is a series of brilliantly evocative soundpieces with electronics, guitar, and sound and explosions in the distance, tantric harmonizing in the desert, "A deeper understanding of conflict", "The Relentless Landscape," "The Excellent Hyena," "The Wolf Demon." With John Zorn, alto sax, Tenko, voice, Christian Marclay, turntables, Jim Staley, trombone.

"Blue" Gene Tyranny

I think this blog can't be better, all the condiments are fantastic and also you are doing a complete work adding Buy Viagra at the blogroll. That's an important point.
