Boomkat Product Review:
An unusual release for Berlin minimal mainstay Stefan Goldmann. Here, the artist sidesteps the sequencing and layering of his usual output and works spontaneously to create some of his most unusual and experimental work to date.
Opening track '29.09.2019' was recorded at Nomart Gallery of Osaka in Japan, and after playing an individual set alongside improv duo .Es, the three musicians were told in front of an audience that they would be playing together. Goldmann thought on his feet and loaded up samples from his previous Tapeworm release "Haven't I Seen You Before", firing these sounds thru FX while Sara Dotes added piano and percussion and Takayuki Hashimoto played sax, shakuhachi, guitar and harmonica.
The result is surprising and unusual, an almost 20-minute improvisation that bubbles through squiggly electronics and screaming noise, stopping occasionally on angular drones and ending on ominous, rhythmic techno. 'Echoes of an Era' is more straightforward, a guitar improvisation from the "Haven't I Seen You Before" sessions, and closing track '12.07.2012' was recorded at the Tapeworm's 10th anniversary party at London's Cafe Oto.
