Artist: FINE, MILO/PAUL METZGER
Title: Concerning The Other Condition/Spontaneous Composition..
Label: Neros Neptune
|...Generator. Neros Neptune presents a split LP of solo works from free-jazz improv master/multi-instrumentalist Milo Fine and guitar experimentalist Paul Metzger. "Moosbruger was recorded on the occasion of my first public collaboration with Paul Metzger. Before the concert, and for a number of reasons, my thought was that, when my name was drawn for a solo, Id be playing drum set. But, as befits the spirit of improvisation (the moment), I grabbed the B flat clarinet, and then, echoing the first time I played piano in public (1971), moved off stage to the prepared piano remains, where the two instruments conjoined. Ulrich is a self-contained section of a set-long (drum) solo I played at the Art of This Gallerys Tuesday Night Improvised Music Series. Moosbruger was recorded on March 21, 2009. Ulrich was recorded on January 20, 2009."-Milo Fine. "I created the Spontaneous Composition Generator to produce a random series of musical actions. It is a device consisting of 37 altered music box movements mounted in a wooden painters box. The alterations include dampening, detuning, replacing, removing, doubling, and reversing the tines. Most of the original melody pins on the cylinders were removed. Rubber bands of various lengths and thicknesses were attached to the winding stems to facilitate a continuously variable tension. One dozen hand-wired piezo pickups are attached to output a stereo signal. The piece on this recording was created November 9, 2009 with a time of 18:43. It was specifically made as a complement to Milos contributions to this Neros Neptune LP." -Paul Metzger. Strictly limited edition of 421 vinyl copies only.
