The ‘e l e m e n t s‘ franchise welcomes this new arrival:
an Avant-Garde/noise mashup of the album ‘Sun of Goldfinger’ (released 03.01.19 on ECM) by:
It was on or about the 3rd to 4th listen of the album that the idea of slashing it into sections for recombination occurred to me. Then a random, drive-by remembrance of Pat Metheny’s ‘Zero Tolerance for Silence’ seeped into my cranium along with some latter day Crimson, Song X, a sprinkling of TONUS . . . & the project was off, running & eventually grew into a two-part set.
Working with excerpts from the 3, 20+ minute album compositions, I then treated each excerpt as a song unto itself & mixed them in with like-minded compositions. Din is often an arduous construct; and the wielding of the mixological axe requires patience, poise . . . & practice.
A few of the mixed tracks were treated (ghosted, slightly stretched/extended) for effect – but it’s predominantly a “straight-up” mix project. The title is pulled/morphed from the main compositions. Artwork flagrantly sourced, pondered upon & manipulated via iPad..
