    Nova Musicha No 6: Four Principles On Ireland And Other Pieces

    Import


    Having worked closely with Karlheinz Stockhausen during the late 1950s, the Irish-born Cornelius Cardew became a major figure on the European avant-garde music scene over the following decade. However, by the early 1970s Cardew had become deeply involved in the international communist movement which created a growing rift between himself and his colleagues (particularly after his book Stockhausen Serves Imperialism was published in 1974). As Cardew's politics changed, so did his music, which began drawing more and more from the populist roots of folk music. On this LP Cardew proposes a series of compositions based on the revolutionary songs of different countries (i.e. the Irish Rebellion of 1798, the Islamic Rebellion of 1937, the uprisings in West Berlin in the early seventies). It is perhaps not surprising that Cardew's new music found a home in Italy of the 1970s (this LP was originally released on the Italian Cramps label), as the Italian Communist Party was extremely strong during this era.

    HIVE1

    Written and recorded throughout 2013 and 2014, HIVE1 marks a new direction for Tyondai Braxton: his first album in six years, since 2009's Central Market, and his first recording for Nonesuch, where he joins formative influences such as Morton Subotnick and John Adams. Most significantly--after having several of his large-scale orchestral works performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, London Sinfonietta, and Wordless Music Orchestra--HIVE1 is the composer's first fully realized work of purely electronic music since his earlier loop-based music in the early 2000s, and an unmistakable swerve away from Braxton's signature materials and musical concerns to date.


    Where the dominant influence on Central Market was the Stravinsky of Petrushka and The Rite of Spring, HIVE1 draws more from the mid-20th century avant-garde, a world inhabited by the likes of Varèse, Xenakis, and Stockhausen--along with the more contemporary examples of Florian Hecker, Carston Nicolai/Raster Noton, and Braxton's frequent collaborator Ben Vida, who appears as a performer in HIVE1. Where Central Market was scored for a small army of strings, guitars, horns, kazoos, and singers, the music of HIVE1 derives from the abrasive textures and manipulation of organic and synthesized sounds.

    Paris Concert

    Circle was a band on fire with creativity. Corea and Holland had just left Miles Davis's band, keen to explore all parameters of new music in an improvised context. Braxton, equally inspired by Stockhausen and Coltrane, brought in new directions from the AACM. Altschul's resumÉ included extensive work with Paul Bley. Together they were, for a while, matchless. Melody Maker: "Paris Concert is evidence that here was one of the most excitingly talented bands of recent years." Recorded 1971.

    Improvisation

    Import


    The godfather of improvisational guitar, Derek Bailey's praises have been sung far and wide by everyone from Pat Metheny to Karlheinz Stockhausen for having revolutionized the way the instrument was played over the last half of the twentieth century. Although fans are often frustrated by the low-fidelity of his earlier recordings, this 1975 LP (originally released on the Italian avant-garde label, Cramps), stands out in that regard. Recorded in an actual studio (unlike most of his early work) in Milan, for this session Bailey was apparently asked by his Italian hosts to define "improvisation". He then proceeded to give his answer in the form of these fourteen tracks (eight performed with electric guitar, five with six-string acoustic guitar, and one with a 19-string acoustic guitar).

    On The Corner

    Miles Davis On the Corner on Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Get Down and Make It Funky: Miles Davis' Groundbreaking On the Corner Focuses on the Groove and Bottom End


    Mastered From the Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity 180g LP Reveals Multiple Levels of Rhythm, Visceral Bass, and Pioneering Production Techniques In Transparent Fashion


    Exotic, Bold, Streetwise: Spirited 1972 Album Embraces Davis' Jungle Sound With Percussive Foundations, Trance Loops, and Transformational Arrangements


    Miles Davis' boundlessly influential On the Corner was so far ahead of its time upon release in 1972, the jazz cognoscenti rejected its groundbreaking concoction as middling in nature. Yet time has a way of righting wrongs and shifting views by adding needed context and perspective to visionary ideas, music, and approaches - the likes of which fill Davis' boldest and most controversial - undertaking. Designed to bring the focus back on the groove and bottom-end frequencies, the funk-loaded On the Corner revolutionized jazz. It also set new standards for record production, presaging remixing and electronica by more than a decade. And the work has never sounded more thrilling.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 180g LP of On the Corner exposes the internal mechanisms, free-associated playing, and then-unmatched studio techniques in vivid audiophile-grade sonics. The low end, crucial to every composition here, is both heard and felt, with locked-in bass lines and low-range percussion conveyed as taut, solid, and visceral passages. You can even discern the multiple levels of rhythm Davis employed on complex tracks such as Black Satin, as On the Corner stands as his first effort to use overdubbing and multiple tape machines.


    New degrees of spaciousness and airiness - equally important to the musique concrete arrangements - give the impression Davis and Co.'s creations float in space. Instruments are portrayed in three-dimensional manners, rhythmic loops retain tonal purity, and horn solos skitter across an extra-wide soundstage that takes listeners into Columbia's Studio E. Mobile Fidelity's analog version captures Teo Macero's innovative production - and the trumpeter's cutting-edge aural collages - in definitive fashion.


    Heavily inspired by Sly and the Family Stone, On the Corner portrays street vibes and remains Davis' blackest-sounding record. The conscious attempt to connect with youthful audiences tapped into rock and funk is evident not only on the colorful cartoon cover art depicting hot-pants and zoot-suit revelers, but in the music's emphasis of recurring drum and bass grooves. Distinct from Davis' earlier fusion experiments, the record's long-misunderstood set dials back improvisation in favor of beats, loops, and atmospherics that generate trance-like effects. While Davis utilizes his band for core duties - Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock prominently figure - he also relies on an all-star cast of sidemen for concentrated soloing and additional support.


    With rhythm providing the basic foundation, other notes fall into place, with their positioning steered by Macero and Davis' editing-room techniques. Looking to the manipulation-based work of Karlheinze Stockhausen and teaming with Stockhausen disciple Paul Buckmaster, Davis re-imagines what grooves constituted and could accomplish throughout On the Corner. The shapes of the songs become completely transformed as they progress. Faint melodies, spacey chords, chunky riffs, wah-wah fills, and repeated motifs bounce in and out of a sonic funhouse that wouldn't be out of place at a Harlem block party. Exotic, intrepid, and filled with Davis' jungle sound, On the Corner remains daringly hip more than four decades later.

    Bodysong.

    "Experience the sound of a life as imagined by Jonny Greenwood, all in the span of 45 minutes." - Paste Magazine


    "Bodysong boasts an abundance of forward-looking ideas and
    possibilities, a conversation between melody and cacophony that
    can provoke with finesse. Not only a worthy side project from one
    of the most popular groups in the world today, but a valuable addition
    to the petite canon of successful rock soundtracks that lives
    and breathes on its merits alone." - Pop Matters


    "A collage of shimmering, impressionistic strings and pianos
    that occasionally give way to lightly rocking acoustic guitar interludes,
    Stockhausen-esque cacophonies and Penderecki-inspired
    discord. One moment can sound like a church organ, another a
    Twenties jazz party." - Rolling Stone


    Bodysong. is Jonny Greenwood's first original score for a film,
    and makes up the soundtrack to a BAFTA winning documentary
    film of the same name, directed by Simon Pummell.


    Originally released in 2003, the reissue has been remastered by
    Christian Wright. With artwork by Stanley Donwood. Available on
    single gatefold LP.
