"Kevin Corcoran's official discography spotlights the wide range of his drumming repertoire -- witness the arty-free jazz punk stylings of Antennas Erupt! (S-S Records), the bombastic blasts on his various Weird Forest 7"s, the more subdued percussion on his Americana-cum-improv trio with Christian Kiefer and Tetuzi Akiyama (Digitalis) and most recently, the incredibly tight avant-rock drum beats featured with Garrincha & the Stolen Elk (Stunned). But left to his own devices, Corcoran is much more interested in subtle, quiet sounds and Haptic Music is the first release spotlighting solely his ideas. These pieces reflect his interest in percussion as timbre gestures (touching texture, sounding surfaces with objects, droning cymbals) where rhythm is not the major aspect but underscores or enables certain movements. Haptic Music was recorded between 2008 and 2010. Acoustic and amplified percussion improvised and recorded live. Pro-dubbed chrome cassettes come with embossed paste-on covers and professional full-color j-card inserts. Limited edition of 100." (label info)
