AMBARCHI, OREN - PERSONA (CD)


"Originally released in 2000 as a limited vinyl only album, 'Persona' is now available on CD for the first time. 'Persona' was recorded in February 2000, just a week after the 'Afternoon Tea' collaboration with Fennesz, Pimmon, Pita and Keith Rowe. Utilizing a raw and spontaneous approach like the 'Stacte' series of solo releases, Ambarchi recorded the pieces on 'Persona' at home in a day, only using his guitar, a handful of effect pedals and a boombox as a monitor(!). Considered to be a 'sister' release to Ambarchi's acclaimed 'Suspension' album on Touch, the material on 'Persona' (originally released on E.R.S. in a tiny edition of 300) was only heard by a handful of listeners. It recalls the deceptive simplicity and temporal suspensions of composers such as Morton Feldman and Alvin Lucier, and the physicality of rock music, stripped back to its bare bones, abstracted and replaced with pure signal. Remastered in December 2008 and with artwork designed by Stephen O'Malley." (label info)
