Chatham, Rhys – “Piano Music – Echo Solo” – [Azoth Schallplatten]

morris   3/29/2006   A Library

Chatham has such a rich history…La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, Pierre Boulez, Stockhausen, all in the late 60’s early 70’s. When punk hit, he was inspired to encoporate guitar sonics into his symphonic compositions. Working with Glenn Branca (amongst other heavies in the NY scene of the mid-late 70’s) he opened up huge avenues of thought without which, bands like Skullflower, Swans, Branca, Sonic Youth, would not exist. These recording were commisioned for the Robert Kovich dance company, and are heady, prepared theory for piano. Trippy intonations, great liner notes describing the whole shabang. Check it-
