JOHN ADAMS / GAVIN BRYARS / CHRISTOPHER HOBBS

Ensemble Pieces

(Obscure) Used LP $15.00

Two pieces by a member of AMM (cheerful, repetitive carols on organ, bells and toy piano), one of which is based compositionally on the stiching pattern of a sweater, three austere and slowly evolving instrumentals from a live recording with Adams’s New Music Ensemble, San Francisco. And Bryars’s extraordinary ensemble piece performed by himself, Derek Bailey and Cornelius Cardew mimicking a pre-recorded cassette and shifting from lounge jazz music something more aleatory. 1978 repress of 1975 LP
