FISHER & LOL COXHILL, MORGAN - SLOW MUSIC (CD)


"Recorded in 1980, this collaboration between master tape manipulator Morgan Fisher and legendary improvisational saxophonist Lol Coxhill sees the two explore a mutual interest in treating their work as mere raw material for further experimentation and re-modeling. Working in Fisher's Notting Hill home studio, Coxhill's performances (including Handel's 'Largo' and his own 'Pretty Little Girl') were recorded and reworked using a number of innovative studio techniques to create entirely new material, some of which was used as a background for further performances by the pair, the rest treated to further manipulation via tape delays, synthesiser filters and other electronic equipment, resulting in multi layered tape loop pieces, drones and sound collages. Originally released on Pipe Records, this reissued edition has been remastered by Morgan himself, and is accompanied by a bonus track, 'Play Quiet'. Originally available only on a cassette given away with the UK's 'ZG Magazine', this piece features music performed by John White, Gavin Bryars and Dave Smith at the launch party for Fisher's 'Miniatures' album and collaged with remixed material from "Slow Music". A fantastic rarity available here on CD for the first time." (label info)
