Oliveros, Pauline – “Roots of The Moment, The” – [Hat Hut Records Ltd]

Spacey drones in droney spaces. Recorded in Switzerland in 1987, this material offers a glimpse of the vastness of outer space. That’s what Joe McPhee says in the liner notes, anyway. Oliveros, for at least half a century an undeniable force in modern music, lays out drifting accordion lines that do indeed suggest a simple, infinite universe. At the same time, the composer could be suggesting a universe that folds back upon itself and asks questions. I hear an occasional hint of Terry Riley’s intricately patterned work in this music. A 2006 Hat Hut release.
