I have a feeling our Clint’s a fan of veteran guitar picker Michael Chapman, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard his name mentioned in hushed tones around the office, but this is actually the first time I’ve ever sat down and listened to his music. On this LP he’s got a single 24-minute composition ‘Pachyderm’ on the A side and then there’s a remix with electronics by Robert Antony on the reverse.
On the solo piece on the A side Chapman picks out slow patient chords and lets them ring with a throbbing vibrato. It’s contemplative, glacially paced and somewhat trance-inducing, as the slowly shifting, deft clusters of notes are left to pulse slowly away before the vibrato is removed and there’s a palpable sense of relief as the notes start to decay in their expected crystalline way. It’s very beautiful and goes on for ages.The remix on the other side adds some eerie drones and static crackles for a respectful interpretation coated with extra haunty weirdness. It gets quite cosmic and bloopy towards the end which for full new age floaty vibes. It’s patient, repetitive, palate-cleansing music to accompany your solitary late-night meditations.
