Boomkat Product Review:
As Philip Corner's calligraphy puts it on the back of the jacket, 'Coldwater Basin' is "...a home recording with microphone of water running from a faucet into a sink. New York City, the Lower East Side, sometime in the 60s".
This is the 2nd part of the Fluxus figure's intimate recordings with Bill Fontana, spiriting us away to one of the most vitalised places and times in the world in a way which more prosaic music and recordings cannot. " "Remember? When you made these things at home, on the best equipment you or your other poor friends could find? And you had that Japanese tape recorder with built-in mike; indeed that was the only piece of furniture on your tatami floor on the Lower East Side that summer of 1961" Recommended.
