Album Review

Cymerman, Jeremiah – “In Memory of The Labyrinth System” – [Tzadik]

cinder   6/29/2011   A Library, CD

Jeremiah is a conceptual clarinetist living in Brooklyn. The liner notes were quite interesting, as he made all the sounds on this recording of his own creation, without any delays, pitch-shifting or manipulating. His use of the computer allowed him to cut and paste and create a super unique weirdness. There’s no way I would think a clarinet was the starring role in this. Crazy warbles, wails and quick little stabs of reed. Saliva, breath and wind. He also used a mellotron drone to accompany the wind instrument. Very Tzadik, very cool.
