More Info

"This lp consists of new works by two important musicians from the world of European free improvisation. Dutch pianist Cor Fuhler and Swedish saxophone player Mats Gustafsson have been exploring new possibilities for their instruments for the past twenty years. Not only by putting these instruments in radically different contexts, but more importantly by developing new ways of playing. Cor Fuhler (1964) mainly works inside the grand piano, stimulating the strings with all sorts of magnets, ebows and customised handtools. He is also an builder and inventor of musical instruments. His most known invention is the keyolin: a violin that can be played through a keyboard. Fuhler works in a wide variety of groups such as that Music In Movement Electronic Orchestra (MIMEO), Otomo Yoshihide's New Jazz Orchestra and his own Corkestra. Mats Gustafsson (1964) has broadened the textural possibilities of his instrument with an extended array of tongue techniques. On his work Sleeping Instructions' included on this release he plays baritone saxophone and electronics. He has made recordings using all sorts of saxophones, even the rare contrabass saxophone and slide-saxophone. Gustafsson playts in groups all over the world, most notably his trio The Thing, Barry Guy's New Orchestra, Peter Brtzmann's Chicago Tentet and Otomo Yoshihide's New Jazz Orchestra. He is a regular collaborator with member of Zu, Sonic Youth and The Boredoms. While the explorations of these two musicians take them to very different musical and emotional terrain, the unrelenting sense of experiment is what connects them on this LP." [label info]
