SHIMIZU, YASUAKI & DAVID CUNNINGHAM - One Hundred
Legendary UK producer David Cunninghams (The Flying Lizards, Michael Nyman, This Heat) first album in almost ten years. David Cunningham is a record producer and musician who makes installation works based on real-time exploration of acoustics. His first significant commercial success came with The Flying Lizards single Money," an international hit in 1979. Over the years he has worked with an eclectic range of people and music, from pop groups (This Heat, Martin Creed) to improvisation (David Toop, Steve Beresford) to Michael Nymans music for Peter Greenaways films and work with Ute Lemper and others. His installation works have inhabited the 11th Biennale of Sydney, Tate Britain, ICC Tokyo, Ikon Birmingham and most recently, Carter Presents, London. "Im interested in what happens when time, sound and space are explored together. Inseparable elements, but formal European thought does not really seem to acknowledge this ... I was fascinated by the sonic vocabulary enabled by the reel-to-reel tape recorder and its successor technology -- tools that could manipulate and shape sound like nothing else. Most records I intuitively love involve this sort of treatment -- from Elvis Presleys Heartbreak Hotel to The Ronettes to Terry Riley to Donna Summers I Feel Love and so many more." Yasuaki Shimizu, Japanese composer, arranger and renowned jazz saxophonist (who has worked with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bill Laswell and The Orb) has been pushing the saxophone to the limit since the 1970s. Whether as a solo performer, with his group Saxophonettes or as a composer for film and video soundtracks (e.g. Peter Greenaways The Pillow Book) he has consistently explored new avenues in an unparalleled musical career. David Cunningham: guitar, footpedals, delays and kalimba. Yasuaki Shimizu: tenor saxophone, piano, delays." - Staubgold.
