Constellation Tatsu – Winter Batch 2018 (Rose, Hakobune, memorygarden禅, Celer + Forest Management)

While it may be the middle of Summer this Winter tape batch is still well worth your attention. But I should apologize. I listened to these four tapes many times throughout the long winter in Minnesota. February was predictably frigid,

Vacuamoenia ~ Panphonia

Seeing, goes the theory, necessarily modifies what is being seen. That’s not even considering the effects of perspective, which is to say the mental articulation of meanings and associations in a particular language about whatever’s under observation. If field recording

Forma ~ Semblance

Peter Burr’s cover is a perfect reflection of the music: man and machine, improvisation and code.  In visual terms, this is a stark departure from the prog look of 2016’s Physicalist, although half of those tracks would feel at home here.

Fabio Perletta ~ 7456. Live at Human Resources, Los Angeles
