Revered, veteran guitar maverick, Michael Chapman of Cumbria, England, presents the hushed, radiant 24-minute improvisation 'Pachyderm', alongside an electronically tempered remix by Robert Antony. It's the 2nd in his more recent series of improvisations, making a move away from the structured songwriting much loved by the likes of John Peel, Thurston Moore and Jack Rose, to an absorbingly patient, simple and meditative style exploring the potential of a single ambient chord. Robert Antony's remix renders that piece seemingly in real time, filleting filigree layers of resonance and more brooding tones from the original to fill the space with a dense, smoky gauze of drone. Chapman has played with everyone from Elton to Bowie, and now, at 71 years of age, he's ripe for rediscovery.(BOOMKAT)
