David Jackman

Up from Zero

Label: Robot Records

Format: CD

Genre: Noise

In stock


Originally released in 1982 on cassette (Aeroplane Records AR3, UK), Up From Zero was David Jackman's third album of compositions. Integrating tapes, loops, shortwave radio signals, guitar tones, voice and a host of percussion elements, each piece accumulates into a complex collage of cycles that create a haunting set of 'movements' and bizarre spatial relationships. These are the most sought after of Jackman's first, solo recordings. The proto-Organum sound. Also included is 'Offshore', (1980). This track, recorded with the assistance of Philip Sanderson (of Stormbugs/Snatch Tapes/Claire Thomas & Susan Vezey fame), is Jackman's earliest piece to appear on CD to date. Fluttering tones along with sustained slabs of bowed guitar create a droning crest and a fitting 'outro' for these essential gems from the vault. Expertly restored from the original master tapes by Robert Hampson (of Main). Packaged in a card mini-jacket in an edition of 700 copies
