Fred Frith

Middle of the Moment

Label: ReR Megacorp, Frederiksberg Records

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

In stock


Continuing the definitive Fred Frith edition, this is the CD based on Fred’s music for the second film he made with Humbert and Penzel – following nomads – that features, along with Fred’s compositions and re-workings, a restless and gripping unfolding of atmospheric locations, tuareg and other musics, ethongraphic material and times captured. A collage or a soundwork rather than a straightforwardly musical composition, this is a serious and unfairly marginalised piece (because it falls between worlds?) that nevertheless succeeds brilliantly once the ear is fully opened. A meditation too on the power – and the enigma – of recording.
