VARIOUS - Par Hasard : Chance Composition 1913-1951, LTM Recordings
"Par Hasard is a unique collection of avant-garde music by Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Georges Ribemont-Dessaignes and John Cage, all composed during the first half of the 20th century using chance techniques and operations. All selections are performed on piano. Iconic French conceptual artist Marcel Duchamp conceived both of his Musical errata in 1913. One consists of notes drawn at random from a hat; for the second, balls are dropped through a funnel into wagons drawn by a toy train. "Execution," Duchamp confided, "is rather pointless in any event." In fact both… Read more

NOëL AKCHOTé - Gesualdo: Madrigals for Five Guitars, Blue Chopsticks
"Akchoté is best known as an improvising guitarist heard solo or in memorable collaborations with Derek Bailey, Sam Rivers, Lol Coxhill, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, Han Bennink and many others.

Lap steel guitarist Mike Cooper meets The Necks' pianist, Chris Abrahams on record for the 2nd time. 'Trace' was recorded in 2009, not long after the duo had released their 'Oceanic Feeling-Like' (2008) album collaboration on Room40. Again, it documents the two maverick improvisers doing what they do best, creating characteristically subtly-evolving soundscapes where Cooper's distinctive lap steel flits over Abrahams' warm, levitating beds of synth and organ drone. The session breaks down to three 20 minute parts, the first establishing a breezy tone with something "other" lurki… Read more

"Performed and put to tape at Estuary Recording Facility, The Seeker and The Healer constitutes the first collaborative work by Texas-based sound artist Cory Allen and Louisiana minimalist composer Duane Pitre. The album’s two side-long pieces were developed out of multiple improvisational sessions governed by predetermined rules, sourced from piano, bowed guitar, harmonium and 49-stringed drone harp (a custom-made instrument of Allen’s own design featured here on record for the first time). In the context of both musicians’ discographies, these pieces occupy a unique and… Read more

"School House is the lo-fi solo guise of Peter J Taylor, a British composer whose work primary focuses on multiple guitar compositions, focusing on extended techniques, custom tunings and adaptive notation to explore the harmonies of micro-tonal change in overtones. Stretching his ensemble pieces to include upwards of 26 axes, Taylor’s work has gained steady renown across Europe and comparisons to the likes of Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca. On Soft Focus, Taylor boils the main components of his compositional concerns down to two long form solo excursions of gaseous bliss ambience. Writte… Read more
