    Almost an hour of this trio's set at Sant'Anna Arrest in September 2015 - at once energetic and lyrical, with Dikeman's sax superbly offset by Parker and Drake.

    By the way, RAI3 broadcast the Evan Parker Quartet's 4th September set from the same festival a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't able to record this broadcast - if someone has a recording, could it be shared here?

    This is the recording of  "Kraanerg's" premiere.
    Although the composition is a continous piece of music I've post it each LP side separately.
    So you have four files...

    ...for more information go to Wikipedia

    Kraanerg Musique Pour Orchestre Et Bande Magnétique
    [Musique de ballet pour orchestre et bande magnétique 4 pistes :
    1(pic).1.2(clpic, clCB).1(cbn)-, crd ( ou multiple)]

    Marius Constant, conductor
    Ensemble Ars Nova De L'O.R.T.F.

    Recorded June 2, 1969 Ottawa, Inauguration du National Arts Centre, National Ballet Guild of Canada
    - the rehearsal began in April 1969.

    Erato  STU 70527/28 (vinyl rip)

    Originally available with the LP box "XENAKIS" (Erato STU 70526/27/28/29/30), 1969.

    Kraanerg is a composition for 23 instruments and 4-channel analog tape composed by Iannis Xenakis, originally for a ballet with choreography by Roland Petit and set design by Victor Vasarely. It was created for the grand opening of the Canadian National Arts Centre in Ottawa, which was originally to coincide with Expo 67 but was delayed to 1969.

    As the LP was part of a box set there's no cover - I've simply added the red letters to the box' front pic for a start...
    ...only after uploading I've discovered one nasty audible crack on side D.....

    heres a serenely beautiful , bittersweet music that’s very much a central European folk inflected fusion with free jazz.

    I know nothing of the Hungarian ‘binder quintet’ beyond this one lp ive owned for 20 years.
    A unique gem ,that’s worn very well and is unlikely to ever be reissued on cd.

    There is no date at all on the lp, late seventies early eighties seems very likely.
    This was put out on KREM the recording label of the state controlled Hungarian national radio broadcaster.


    >The text above is by sotise which posted this gem almost at the beginning of this blog ( 9th November, 2007!). And here I discovered the music for the first time in 2009 or so...
    Just recently I listened to it and was again delighted.

    Got this recording several years ago.
    Forgot who gave me the CDr at the shop in the center of Munich....
    All musicians except Mr. Matsumoto were unknown to me then and now.
    Kelly Churko, who was one of the founding members, died quiet young in 2014.
    It seems Ossuary didn't left any official recordings.

    Actually I rediscovered the CDr today after searching for my Group Ongaku CD....
    Should appeal to all fans of the harsher side of improv. Enjoy

    The music herein was already posted by Riccardo in 2010.
    But Michael King - producer of the now sadly defunct label - asked for a removal of the links.
    The links were removed and the music was released about two years later in 2012 on Reel Recordings.
    Already in 2013 the label stopped its production....
    King wanted to start a new label called "Jazz in Britain" but sadly he died in 2015.

    Engineered by twenty-two year Riccardo Bergerone, from a stage front and centre table position as reserved for him personally by Elton Dean.
    Positioned far left stage, beyond the band, thus often distant sounding.
    Kudos to Keith Tippett for his understanding and support for the music.

  • 09/18/16--09:00: Cathy Berberian - A Portrait

  • Here is some more from the NRK archives, broadcast in March 1970. I vaguely remember watching it at the time, so all the more delighted to find it in the digital archives of the NRK.

    First we get a performance of The Beatles' Ticket to Ride, with tongue firmly in cheek and a little later Yesterday, with the singer and audience all decked out in fake noses and moustaches. An interview with Norwegian composer Kjell Skyllstad follows which allows Cathy Berberian to reflect on the rituals of classicial recitals, both from the point of view of the performer and audience.

    Three performances follow, first Cathy Berberian's own "Stripsody," clearly inspired by comic strips and the vocal acrobatics involved in emulating the texts of the strips. Then, two pieces by John Cage follow, "Flower" and "Wonderful Widows of 18 Springs", sparsely performed with only a drum for accompaniment. Finally, we get to hear "Thema. Omagio a James Joyce" by Luciano Berio, with whom she was married from 1950 - 1964. The entire recital is taken from Joyce's texts, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to pinpoint exactly what's being cited. The voice is electronically treated and the camera pans over the audience to catch their facial epressions and occasional eye movements, all superimposed by videos and images of sea gulls and sailing ships. By the end, the words have been rendered unintelligible by electronic manipulation.

    All in all, performances which range from humorous takes on popular culture to the deep crevices of Joyce's texts. But thoroughly enjoyable! Oh, and I forgot to say: All in glorious black and white!

    This is Intersystems, 27 years later. Of several Canadian artistic/musical productions (e.g. CCMC, Nihilist Spasm Band, The Artists' Jazz Band), the Intersystems LPs (No 1 Record, Peachy and Free Psychedelic Poster Inside) are my favourites, for Mills-Cockell's wild electronics and Parker's savagely satirical wit and vocal delivery. They were re-released last year individually and in a box set that has my highest recommendation, with great sound compared to earlier CD copies and what is on youtube (though an introduction is there if you haven't heard them). The accompaniment and poetry are less stark and challenging here, but definitely worth a listen.

    Some more from the NRK archives, this time two performances by Karlheinz Stockhausen's emsemble on 29 and 30 September 1969. These were at the Henie Onstad Art Centre at Høvikodden outside Oslo. The Centre was opened in 1968 and soon became the most prominent venue for new music, electronica and even jazz. Among jazz events in 1969, the premier performance of George Russell's Electronic Sonata for Souls Loved by Nature and a concert by the Cadentia Nova Danica, an ensemble led by saxophonist John Tchicai.

    We get to hear two pieces (in separate files), first "Kurzwellen" (Shortwaves) where short wave receivers play a key role as a sound source for emulation and improvisation. This piece was recorded and released by Deutsche Grammophon in 1970. The record lists six musicians, but as far as I make out, there are only five present in this concert. These are:

    Karlheinz Stockhausen - electronics, mixing, harmonica (on "Es")
    Aloys Kontarsky - piano
    Johannes G. Fritsch - viola
    Harald Bojé - keyboards
    Rolf Gehlhaar - percussion

    The second piece, "Es" (It), an excerpt from "Aus den Sieben Tagen" (From the Seven Days), features the same ensemble, but this piece is based on what may be called non-cognitive spontaneity, reminiscent of Eastern ideas derived from meditation and buddhism. Only when the mind is devoid of thought is the time to play. Once one starts to think again, one should stop immediately. Hence there is a lot of space and silence in this music, only broken by sudden otbursts of sound. Both pieces may sound random to many ears and to some degree they are, but there is, I sense, a strong procedural and conceptual element to this music nonetheless. The second half of the video is a Q&A session with musicians, including some of his own, where he gets to expound on his concept of biological time, space, natural sound and on what he calls intuitive music.

    Same as for the Cathy Berberian programme, which I posted before, it's all in glorious black and white!
