- Presenca Series 001 by Pauline Oliveros / Zeena Parkins
Side A is Pauline Oliveros blowing on a melodica discordantly. This goes on and on and on and whether you like the atonal notes or not you have to admire her puff.
Side B by Zeena Parkins starts off with distorted birdsong before it’s overtaken by a kind of distorted mouth harp. Out of the two pieces I ‘like’ this more, in that it’s not hurting my ears. Both pieces have been preserved on vinyl from archived recordings and the overriding feeling is that the record is more for historical significance than anything you’d be comfortable introducing to your ears.
