AMBARCHI, OREN - STACTE.3 (CD)


"Originally released in 2000 as a limited vinyl only album, 'Stacte.3' is now available on CD for the first time. Described by Jon Dale as "Alvin Lucier and Cluster collaborating for Mego", the concept of Oren Ambarchi's 'Stacte' LP series - now comprising of five volumes - began in 1998. The first few 'Stacte' LPs were self-released by Ambarchi and featured his earliest explorations of the guitar and its sonic possibilities after a period known as a drummer in post-punk, noise and free jazz outfits. An idea was explored and investigated at length using a spontaneous approach, with Ambarchi treating each side of the vinyl like a canvas, slowly capturing a moment, patiently teasing every nuance and implication from each texture. The 'Stacte.3' release (especially the LP's second side) was a breakthrough for Ambarchi and it defined the parameters for his subsequent projects such as 2001's 'Suspension' and 'Grapes From The Estate' from 2004, both released onTouch. 'Stacte.3' is an early glimpse of Ambarchi at his most raw and minimal and it's a fascinating, integral listen in his catalogue of sound works. Remastered in December 2008 and with artwork designed by Stephen O'Malley." (label info)
