This is the first re-issue of Kevin Drumm’s self-titled premiere solo recording since its original appearance in 1996. Perdition Plastics is honored to make Drumm’s foundational work available again in a limited edition of 500 copies. Kevin Drumm is an established and respected composer and improvisational player. He emerged as a notable presence in the thriving Chicago avant music scene of the ‘90s. This release introduced Drumm with seven tracks of improvised, advanced tabletop guitar. Recorded directly to Digital Audio Tape without edits or overdubs, Drumm evokes a powerful new perspective in guitar sound and method. By contrasting sparseness and complexity, Drumm links improvised new music with electronic composition. This sedate, monochromatic package helped further obscure listener expectations.
"a landmark recording of guitar improvisation on which he managed to make an electric guitar played in real-time sound like experimental electronic music by arranging jagged noise within vast fields of silence.” Chicago Tribune (Bill Meyer)
