TOM RECCHION

Oaxaca Dawn / Bamboo

(Elevator Bath - eeaoa032 ) LP picture disc $20.00

Raw, unadulterated, unpretentious snapshots of the early morning cracking of dawn in Oaxaca, Mexico, and a windy afternoon in a Hana bamboo forest on Maui, Hawaii. Recchion says he was “struck by the cacophony of sounds” of the former, which he describes as “a barnyard turned up to 11.” Regarding the latter, he says he “noticed three distinct sounds (though there are more): the wood block clunking of the stocks, the squeaking of the thin branches flicking and slipping off neighboring plants, and the white noise rustling of the leaves on top of the giant clusters.” Edition of 250.
