LASH / PATRICK FARMER / SARAH HUGHES, DOMINIC - DROPLETS (CD)


"Dominic Lash, double bass. Patrick Farmer, percussion. Sarah Hughes, zither & piano. A 20-minute improvisation plus realisations of scores by the Wandelweiser composers Eva-Maria Houben & Taylan Susam, including an extraordinary outdoor performance of Houben's Nachtstück recorded in a wood in Derbyshire during a rainstorm." (label info) "It's exciting to play Wandelweiser music because of its difference from improvisation, the satisfaction of being given specific tasks to carry out and attempting to do so to the best of one's ability, rather than always worrying about "should I play now?... what should I play?... should I stop playing?" and all those other thoughts that are crucial to improvising. But on the other hand many Wandelweiser pieces call upon exactly those kind of decisions, but in a radically reduced way." (D. Lash)
