Title: Cosmic Debris, Vol.IV Split
Format: LP/Artwork
Label: Opax
Country: Italy
Price: $135.00
"Fourth volume in the ongoing "Cosmic Debris" series of split ART-LP releases set up by the Opalio brothers, aka MY CAT IS AN ALIEN (MCIAA), on their own Opax Records. This time the space improv duo from Torino, Italy, shares one side of the vinyl with Swedish radical saxophonist MATS GUSTAFSSON, whose twenty-year career boasts collaborations that range widely over the contemporary improvised music world, from masters of the free jazz such as Peter Brotzmann, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, to famous members of the noise scene such as Thurston Moore, Jim ORourke, Yoshimi & Yamataka Eye among others. In every personal message exchange between MCIAA and Gustafsson, their own respective ALIEN FAITH! & PEACE & FIRE! mottos always occur, often combined by the artists themselves into new formulae & meanings: ALIEN FIRE! / PEACE & FAITH! / ALIEN PEACE! / FAITH & FIRE!. Needless to say dear gents, this is not a joke, yet each of these words combination assumes a deep rule in describing this new exciting adventure in the Cosmic Debris saga. In fact both artists tracks represent an exemplary encounter between open-minded artists, resolute in creating something to go beyond limits and their own goals too, looking for something truly alive and free: Peace & Fire! and Alien Faith! indeed. In his track I Have Not Set Any Time Limits For The Attempt Mats Gustafsson plays tenor and slide sax, weevil sax, and electronics. In MCIAAs Everything Burns Like Cosmic Debris the space brothers play astral and cosmic guitars, vocals, mouth harmonica, space toys and burning percussions. The five-volumes series "Cosmic Debris" features My Cat Is An Alien alongside Text Of Light, Steve Roden, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Loren Connors & his Haunted House band. Each record comes with an original acrylic painting by Roberto Opalio on 30x30cm proper canvas, with a unique Polaroid instant film installed on each piece, representing 100 different perspectives of a same subject related to My Cat Is An Aliens own cosmic imaginary." - Opax. Edition of 100.
