Format: Audio CD
Some people say that avant-garde music is just sound with all the musicality ripped out of it. Such people should listen to this.
That's not to say this is accessible or anything. Most of your friends will probably still hate it. Your girlfriend will probably think you've been doing some kind of narcotics. Your cat will probably run away to live in an alley somewhere, eking out a bare survival by licking up the dried juices from discarded cans of tuna.
But, if you want to take my word for it (and there's no real reason why you should, except that I have the best taste in music ever), this is quite a beautiful piece of music, all the while being weird and infectiously, devilishly spirited. And it's definitely musical, even to the less-discerning ear, probably due to the pianists who play some downright lovely stuff. I think a lot of people who have at least some appreciation for modern music might like this. Don't get me wrong -- there're still noisy, dissonant, and weird parts, but they're FUN noisy, dissonant, and weird parts.
Chris Cutler was commissioned to do this project for the Frankfurt Jazz Festival. The performers consist of Chris Cutler (objects, low grade electronics, drums), Otomo Yoshihide (turntables, homebuilt guitar), Marie Goyette (grand piano), Zygmunt Krauze (grand piano), and Lutz Glandien (computer, sampling, real-time processing of the pianos and drums).
The music is tough to describe, especially for a pretty dense person such as myself. From the external vantage point, the music is a tapesty blend of disparate elements, from idyllic piano to environmental sounds to mysterious squalls of feedback on guitar to nasty turntable battle damage to percussive, chromatic piano crashes to avant-percussive pitter-patter to...well, and on and on.
