GRANT EVANS

Brittle

(Helen Scarsdale - HMS034) Cassette $8.25

Volatile coagulations and conflagrations abound with malaise at the beginning of the side-long works on Brittle — a vibrant landmark in Evans’s catalogue of harsh wall noise, kosmische explorations, and dronologist collage. Beacons of monochord guitar. Radiant dispersions of glare and trill. Compacted bowed metal resonance. Interstitial ecological sounds from water, bird, and tree. Exhumed cassette minimalism. And a gasping, pulsing, morphing drone that bends around each of these sound objects. Parallels to the meticulous and wondrous bricolage by this resident of northeast Georgia can be found in Chalk, Organum, Toniutti, and Grzinich. C40
