-¢‚Ǩ-ìWisconsin-based composer and improviser, Troy Schafer, has scattered a staggering body of impressive work throughout the darkened pastures of the Midwest over the past decade with his contributions to various group efforts such as Kinit Her, Wreathes, Burial Hex, and Rain Drinkers to name but a few. On top of this stellar output, Schafers 2012 solo release on the Recital label entitled Evening Song Awaken provided further confirmation of his considerable talents as a violinist and as a composer of soul-stirring sounds. The past few years, upon completion of a Masters Degree in Sound at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, has seen Schafers music continue to evolve along more conceptual and theoretical lines, pushing into areas of Musique concrète and performance art, while maintaining a distinctive emotional heft common amongst all of his work. Schafers ongoing Untitled series, started last year, has proven to be the apex of this newfound path as a solo artist, with each installment unlocking a new and varied piece to the beguiling sonic puzzle that he is creating. With that, we couldnt be more thrilled to offer up Untitled No. 4, the latest solo brain-scrambler from Troy Schafer. Here on one side youll find him presenting refined yet dissonant piano lines competing with jarring static disruptions, and on the flip side a lurching industrial swarm bowed out of custom-built electronics and extended techniques. Its another peerless example of modern avant composition forged with blood upon the hands and sweat upon the brow.
Untitled No. 4 comes in a limited edition of 40 clear mono 7-¢‚Ǩ¬ù lathes (with digital download card included) or as a stand-alone digital release that includes both the stereo and mono mixes with purchase.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Sound Bale.
