Album Review

Sharp, Elliott – Tectonics – “Errata ” – [Knitting Factory Records]

Rococo   7/5/2005   A Library, CD

Elliott Sharp is certainly one of the most prolific and eclectic members of the New York “downtown” scene. While he’s released everything from blues to orchestra works, his Tectonics series (of which this is the third) focuses on more electronic sounds. This album appears to be a one-man show, with E# multitracking his 8-string guitarbass, processed saxophones, and computer-generated sounds. At times it all sounds incredibly intricate, at others it sounds like his equipment is shorting out. This is a most interesting hybrid music, though, which may sound completely different depending on the musical context in which you play it (i.e., what music surrounds it).
