Artist: MEV/AMM
Title: Apogee
Format: Double CD
Label: Matchless
Country: UK
Price: $36.00
The first CD features a joint recording of the six musicians of Musica Eletttronica Viva and AMM together: Alvin Curran, Eddie Prévost, Keith Rowe, Frederic Rzewski, Richard Teitelbaum and John Tilbury. It was recorded April 30th 2004. The 2nd CD contains separate performances that MEV and AMM gave at the Freedom of the City festival, London on May 1st 2004. "After the generally low dynamic levels and relatively slow pace of the AMM trio set on 1 May, the MEV trio opened with the blast of Alvin Curran playing the sho far, a trumpet made from a rams horn, a defiantly primitive, prototypical music, fit to leave the walls of the Conway Hall, like some new Jericho, pitched down fiat. If I spoke earlier of the way in which AMM might deal, in Reeve and Kerridges phrase, with the internal, microscopically-enlarged body surface which becomes a landscape - and the same is true of some of Teitelbaum and Currans quieter use of radically pitch-shifted and extended samples - particularly that ululating operatic-theatrical voice, coming to sound almost like something from AMMs label-mates FURl - then this is the extrovert mode, which refuses any easy accommodations. Which division is inherent; as Bourdieu explains, the culture which unifies via the medium of communication is also the culture which separates via the culture of distinction, and which legitimates distinctions. It may be, as Adorno remarks, that a work of art is great insofar as it registers a failed attempt to reconcile such objective antinomies; failure then being in the highest sense the measure of success." - Harry Gilonis.

Artist: ORGANUM
Title: Veil Of Tears
Format: CD
Label: Matchless

Artist: ORGANUM/EDDIE PREVOST
Title: Flayed/Crux
Format: CD
Label: Matchless
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
"CD issue of an LP previously issued on Silent Records in 1985. "Crux" is an Organum track, featuring Andrew Chalk on bowed gong, David Jackman on drone flute & bowed piano, Dinah Jane Rowe on drone flute and Stephen Stapleton on chair. Its a pretty classic piece to say the least. "If you like the dronescapes of traditional Far Eastern musics, youll love Crux; if you wigged out to La Monte Young at his most conceptual, youll do much the same with this. Better still, you may love Crux having previously heard none of these supposed influences; youre simply wired for sound." --David Ilic. "Flayed" features mainly AMMs Prévost on drums, general percussion and acme thunderer whistle, while Jackman added some bowed gongs and electronic sounds." -Matchless
