Ghedalia Tazartes
5 Rimbaud 1 Verlaine

Sound poet and general avant-hollerer Ghedalia Tazartes pays tribute to some French literary greats, reinterpreting 5 Rimbaud poems and 1 by Verlaine. Tzarteses pulls out some wild and playful interpretations, very varied as a set.

Arrigo Lora-Totino
Trio Prosodico

Prime Italian sound poetry recorded in 1976.

Orpheus

Hartmut Geerken has been a busy sound poet, improviser and collaborator (with the likes of John Tchicai and The Art Ensemble Of Chicago) for decades now: Orpheus is a 1996 recording of Geerken manipulating a Ukrainian bandura (and his voice) to remarkable effect. Cherish this new LP edition on Holidays Records (part of a sound poetry series), limited to 200 copies.

Joe McPhee Survival Unit III
Barrow Street Blues

Multi-instrumentalist Joe McPhee is one of the free-jazz greats, playing with everyone from Evan Parker and Mats Gustafsson, to Matthew Shipp. On Barrow Street Blues by Joe McPhee Survival Unit III he plays reeds and brass and is joined by Fred Lonberg-Holm and Michael Zerang. This is an abrasive, spiritual and beautifully unhinged jazz suite from these legends.

Konstrukt and Peter Brötzmann
The Message: Live at Kargart

Konstrukt have a knack for getting super high-grade guests in for their recordings, and The Message: Live at Kargut is no exception. The big man of European free saxophone, Peter Brötzmann himself, joined the quartet for a long-form, high-energy exploration. 200 double vinyl copies, on Holiday Records.

Vom Grill
Lerend Luisteren

Vom Grill is a pseudonym for Dennis Tyfus, known for the famed Ultra Eczema label among many other things. Lerend Luisteren finds him casting tape loops and accordion together with vocal garble and warble. All of this manages to coagulate into some wonderfully weird song-forms. 7” single on Holidays Records.

Hartmut Geerken / John Tchicai
Insistency!

Insistency! is the result of an improvisational session in Kabul in the 1970’s. Harmut Geerken and John Tchicai are the headline players, but this also features impressive work from Ghafur Rasul, Maqsud Schukurwali and Geerken’s 8 year-old son(!). LP in an edition of 250 copies, out on Holidays Records.

Enhet for Fri Musik
Dokument 1: Improvisationer och bandmusik för vilt dansande själar

This LP, rather utilitarianly titled Dokument 1: Improvisationer och bandmusik för vilt dansande själer, is the result of a collective semi-improvising (apparently) in the woods. Enhent for Fri Musik includes members of Sewer Election and Ättestupa, and have produced a strange sound indeed, sparse and intriguing. Limited to 150 copies, on Holidays Records.

Gianni Giublena Rosacroce
Musica da camera oscura

Gianni Giublena Rosacroce is not actually the name of a real person, but a project of Stefano Isaia of Movie Star Junkies. Musica da camera oscura looks to the Middle-Eastern-influenced parts of the Mediterranean, and uses intense and varied percussion alongside clarinet and field recordings to whip up a potent brew. 250 copies only.

Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza
Eroina

Strange improvised sounds from legendary Italian ensemble Gruppi di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, who ranked Ennio Morricone among their number. Each track on Eroica was supposedly inspired by a different drug: see if you can guess which while listening. Weird and exciting music from 1973, still more than fresh today.

Konstrukt and William Parker
Live at NHKM

Konstrukt have already proved that they are very capable collaborators, having already played with the likes of Peter Brötzmann and Joe McPhee! Wow… Here they set up with a similarly legendary player, double bassist William Parker. Full credit to the guys that they find room in their quartet interplay to incorporate such guests.

Konstrukt
Live at Tarcento Jazz

100% of this Turkish free-jazz quartet’s performance Live at Tarcento Jazz Festival last year. Free Jazz, but with a certain tinge to it in its quieter moments that I haven’t heard in many other recordings. Perhaps this is due to the unexpected presence of electronics and flutes?  Pressed to only 200 vinyl copies by the Holidays label.

Nicola Ratti
Ossario Vol. 1

Through the use of sound generated from modular synthesizer, tapes and samples Ossario is a collection of ten separate and independent songs - in two volumes, available separately - introducing a new and radical composing method. The aim is to build some kind of musical skeletons designed not to be covered in flesh and tissues, but trying to reduce everything to the bone. This double release marks the end of the journey started with220 Tones (Die Schachtel, 2011) and continued with Streengs (Senufo Editions, 2012), focusing the research on the use of well-defined sound to be used now as a rhythmic element, now as en electronic impulse or eventually as a self-standing musical element. Simple sounds generated with magnetic tape saturation or electric pulses match with elements belonging to the language of techno music, shifting the focus away from its usual (and predictable) axis to a new (and eccentric) point of view.
