charlemagne palestine - Alloy

*Digpak CD with fold-out insert* Alga Marghen present two archival pieces documenting the previously unpublished 'Golden Research' of Charlemagne Palestine between the early '60s and mid-late '70s. This first edition of the series features three longform pieces with the potential to change your opinion about minimalism and music in general. The first is 'Holy1' and 'Holy 2' recorded in 1967. At the time Charlemagne was listening to a lot of ethnic world music while also immersing himself in New York's late night soundscape. He would take long walks with his saxophonist friend Bob Feldman at 2 or 3 O'Clock in the morning absorbing the spatial diversity and nocturnal beauty of the city at night and channel these expressions into the viscous, deeply resonant drones of 20 minute 'Holy 1' and 10 minute 'Holy 2', composed from midnight to 7 or 8 in the morning by layering multiple oscillators and thickening with incremental white noise "until they were immense sacred machines humming like gargantuan Tibetan bees". The third piece is 'Alloy' which was realised in 1969 at the behest of radio station WBAI. Together with his collaborative partner Tony Conrad, Bob Feldman and his then wife and soprano Deborah Glaser, they collaborated on a work centred about the Alumonium - an aluminium contraption with pieces of fishing wire and pieces of aluminium allowing for sliding pitches - and Tony's long-string drone instrument. It's an arresting piece, feeling instinctively ancient yet forward thinking and utterly transfixing.
