All of your favorites, in one place.
The most recent release on the lichen label; all releases are hand-assembled by zach wallace in his native ann arbor environs and offer of a lovely wave of art-sound, field recordings, improvisation with natural non-instruments, and, in the case of this particular title, a pair of pieces by greg davis and zach himself on farfisa, distorted vocals, and bells. the first appears to be a zonked “cover” of lamonte young’s “31 vii 69 10:26 - 10:49 pm munich from map of 49's dream the two systems of eleven sets of galactic intervals ornamental light years tracery”; with greg and zach howling in the moonlight over a bed of organ drones ; completely fucking amazing volume-oriented dronework that ends all too soon. re-cast the gongs of the original lps’s b-side for re-iterant, feldman-like bells and you’re close... some of my favorite of greg’s recent work; and not even a shred of computer / dsp anywhere within. excellent. this “private” paste-on vinyl edition features the cd-r’s cover blown up to lp spec, with a lichen sticker affixed to the back, double-sided 11” x 11” insert ... mastering and sound are excellent throughout ... glad to have this document of greg & zach’s musical life-blood available again, in an archival format more fitting to the music’s divergent laminar tendencies ... highly recommended !!!
