KELLEY, GREG - I Dont Want To Live Forever
As a veteran of the Massachusetts experimental music community and Minister of Fanfares for the Kingdom of Elgaland-Vargaland, Greg Kelley is well known in his capacity as a trumpeter, with consideration to his input into such diverse ensembles as nmperign, The BSC, Heathen Shame, Cold Bleak Heat, and Damon & Naomi. Kelleys interests, however, span all varieties of sound arrangement, and on I dont want to live forever" he shows his considerable merits as a composer of solo musique concrete.\r\nA co-release between Gameboy and the newly formed Little Enjoyer, this is Kelleys third solo release. For this recording he takes as source material recordings from minidisc and microcassette made during a tour with Mike Bullock and edits them into a single 35+ minute composition. The results are unlike anything Kelley has done before: rigorous, methodical tape-collage, in turns pensive and aggressive, brittle and supple. The record becomes a revolving exploration of a set of atmospherics, rigidly set into a rusty frame of tape-hiss, fragments emerging from the dreams of a long convalescence. Kelley openly acknowledges his musical reference points in the liner notes, but those citations serve only to make more unfamiliar what is already strangely shaped. Not one that assimilates easily to categories, its as uneasy as a pederast at a PTA meeting. Crucial stuff." - Little Enjoyer.\r\nMastered by Jason Lescalleet, with liner notes by Oliver Alden and Leif Elggren.
