Boomkat Product Review:
‘Live at Federal Hall National Memorial 1981’ is a recording of Arnold Dreyblatt and his beautifully named Orchestra of Excited Strings, taken from 1981. This cd release celebrates the 25th anniversary of the piece, and has already garnered huge amounts of praise from the knowledgeable few in the experimental music scene. Tzadik-followers Downtown Music Gallery in central NYC have already commented on the release being ‘Transcendental and ecstatic’, and who am I to disagree? The 50 minute live album revolves around the sound of double bass, piano, hurdy gurdy and organ all resonating wildly in the domed Federal Hall National Memorial. The sound is quite belittling, and the pieces clearly came into their own in this peculiar space – ‘Live at Federal Hall…’ is another crucial part of the American avant garde and another great addition to the Table of the Elements catalogue.
