Part 3 . . . because I couldn’t help myself! (that’s why) : )

Rhetorical Question: Is there such a thing as “too much din”??

This series has been a blast to evolve & construct. I regularly run through editions 1 through 3 via earbuds (usually during workouts – audio noise creates enough distraction that the gym-time flies).
It’s also one of those fringe genres (ether-jazz+noise) that’s received a languid reception . . . but that’s often the way it goes when you’re on the bleeding edge of a new, or seldom produced, order of things (my friend Dirk Serries, of TONUS, YODOK III & multiple iterations of ether-jazz combos, can relate, no doubt).

And, as an aside, the 5.31.19 release of Michele Rabbia’sLost River‘ (ECM) caused me to add a new opening track to the project (w/ some treated drums segueing into track #2)

Given the diversity of artists cranking out noise like this, there’s an obvious market (albeit small) for all of this – but a market nonetheless. Our aim is to occasionally mix within that market. However, if you’re more of a Brahms lullaby sort of weirdo chap . . . by all means do NOT press ‘play’!!
