More Info

Komposition von 1989 fr 100 (!) Gitarren, Bass und Drums in 5 Teilen. Polyphone Gitarren-Schwrme, ein rockig-symphonisches Grundgerst,
majesttisch, monumental, einnehmend, entrckt.... erinnert an GLENN BRANCA und SONIC YOUTH... besonders gefallen uns die rhythmuslosen amorphen Sektionen (I, IV), selten wurden schnere & komplexere Gitarren-Drones auf Platte gepresst!

"By the late 1980s, Rhys Chatham was chafing against the logistical and financial constraints imposed upon him in the States; in his mind was a vast, unprecedented sound. Moving permanently from New York to Paris, Chatham began composing his masterpiece, a piece for one hundred electric guitars, electric bass and drums. The result, An Angel Moves Too Fast to See, is one of the most extraordinary works in the minimalist canon, one that demonstrates the majesty inherent in Chatham's amplified imagination. Now widely available for the first time, this lavish CD presents this sonic revolution in all its glory, and cements Chatham's reputation as a monolithic figure astride both rock and classical musics."
