FRED FRITH / TOYCHESTRA

What Leave Behind

(S.K. - SK28) CD $9.00

All-female Oakland collective collaborating with a giant of prepared guitar, performing Dan Plonsey’s five-part Concerto for Electric Guitar and Toy Orchestra. Lord Frith mixes shimmery noise, strange tunings, brushes, kitchen utensils, and folk-like melodies with the group’s ensemble of toy instruments, actual instruments, and objects. A far cry from a bunch of children banging around, What Leave Behind is a sophisticated sound experience created with intricate recording and mixing techniques. Surreal and dramatic.
