I haven’t been listening to as much Jazz I usually do, but have been digging into my baroque, post-classical and ambient collection. Listening to lots of Harold Budd, Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, JS Bach, A Vivaldi, D Buxtehude and others.
Harry Bertoia – Unfolding (Modern Music/PSF Records)
Sounds like metal sculpture, electronic. Stunning…all of his recordings seem to be out of print. Bad situation!
Alan Lamb – Primal Image (Dorobo)
Lamb composes his music with telegraph wires, blowing in the wind, sensitive to climatic change. Stunning , rumbling music. Massive or as the kids today would say, epic.
He is best known for installations of large scale Aeolian harps, such as his album Primal Image, which consists of contact microphone recordings of kilometre long spans of telegraph wire on 12 acres (49,000 m2) in rural Baldivis south of Perth purchased for that purpose.”
R. Andrew Lee, specialist in minimal piano music, plays quiet piano music with space.
Peter Garland – The Days Run Away (Tzadik)
Quiet piano here, too.
Skip Sempé, harpsichord playing François Couperin – Harpsichord Works (Deutsche Harmonia Mundi)
That’s all for now. I heard much more, I just wasn’t keeping track of it all.
