David First Vinyl, CD & tapes by David First at Norman Records
Fourth album of Sitar Music of North Brooklyn from David First. On Same Animal, Different Cages First draws from the Indian raga to create his own more melodically repetitious improvisations. This entry is also much less of a solo affair than its predecessors, featuring a percussionist who forces First into a slightly more rigid structure. On Fabrica.

David First presents his work with a slightly detached, technical-experiment kind of vibe: this release is sub-titled Solomonos for Analog Synthesiser, and features explorations of a single Korg MS-20 synthesiser. But First just can’t resist getting pulled into the thrill and joy of working with his tool, and excitement shines through the austerity of these sounds. Same Animal, Different Cages Vol. 2 is out on the Fabrica label, limited to 300 copies.
David First picks up his acoustic guitar for this release, the first in what promises to be a series. Throughout these Études he uses the technique of constantly bending the strings (and consequently the sound) as he plays: we’ve all heard that sound, but never expanded into a whole record before! It gives everything on Same Animal, Different Cages Vol 1 a pleasingly unusual feel.
