I Am Sitting In Phill Niblock's Kitchen

(Monotype - MONO042) CD $13.50

Warburton time-stretched about one-hundred If, Bwana recordings and multitracked them into a single forty-five minute sludge cocktail, before decanting and editing them into a single span of music. Al Margolis then added the ambient sounds of the food-preparation parlor of the titular multimedia minimalist. The two subsequently performed live in Belgium in 2008, mixing the recording with live electronics, clarinet, violin, and a time-stretched and pitch-shifted piano piece of Warburton’s, Speed Study I.
