Second album by Turkish free jazzers Konstrukt and the Japanese avant-garde/noise icon Keiji Haino, this time recorded live in concert. Celebrating their tenth anniversary these days, Konstrukt have since been creating an impressive catalog including collaborations/performances with significant musicians like Peter Brötzmann, Joe McPhee, William Parker, Akira Sakata, Marshall Allen, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore, Michael Zerang, Alfred Harth, or Alexander Hawkins that gained them an ever growing audience and media attention (e.g. a recent feature in the Wire), and they keep exploring new grounds. Like in 2016 when Konstrukt invited Keiji Haino to their home town of Istanbul for a recording session that resulted in a quite unique album: A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little That Way Lies A Quagmire offered -- besides all the elements you may well expect from such a musical meeting like Konstrukt's "acerbic razor-edged sound" (Mark Corroto, AllAboutJazz) and Haino's unmistakable voice/guitar explosions -- some actual surprises like the really groovy opening track with a funky feel and a kind of '70s fusion style album closer. Two days later the free jazz quartet and the Japanese avant-garde icon continued their adventure with a public performance at SalonIKSY, pushing things further and raising the level of energy and rawness. Carrying the same title, A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little That Way Lies A Quagmire proves a condign sister release to their previous studio effort (KR 043LP, 2017). Or, as the famous Asian phrase goes: "same same but different!". Recorded and mixed by Deniz Sağdıç at SalonIKSY, Istanbul. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Cover painting "Solar" by Artur Trojanowski. Personnel: Korhan Futacı - alto and tenor saxophones, zurna, kaval, sipsi, instant loops, voice; Umut Çaglar - Moog (MicroMoog), Korg (X-911), gralla, bamboo flutes, xylophones, percussion, tape echo, Vermona (Retroverb); Berkan Tilavel - Nord (Drum2) electronic percussion, tef, cymbal; Erdem Göymen - drums, cymbals, percussion; Keiji Haino - electric guitar, percussion, voice, air synths. Includes download.
