"This double-CD documents the 5th anniversary concert of Perlonex who on this occasion invited Keith Rowe(AMM) and Charlemagne Palestine as guests in order to feature different aspects of their musical work in two distinct sets. All material is presented as played live and no editing or overdubs have been applied. Recorded at Podewil by Christian Malejka on September 11th 2004 Mixed by Ignaz Schick & Burkhard Beins at AudioCue Studio Berlin. While Perlonex normally don't perform with guests the collaboration with Ch. Palestine, this unusual confrontation has been continued and Palestine became a frequent & only guest of the group. After the first meeting documented on this double CD there were several concerts taking place in France, Switzerland & Austria. A recent evening in Vienna which was recorded & broadcasted by ORF radio station documents how intense & unusual the quality of this exchange became. An 80 minutes long stream of intense drones cutting against quotations of Gershwin's "It ain't necessarily so". Keith Rowe is a co-founder of the english improvising ensemble AMM, established in 1966. Already in the late 1950's Rowe started experimenting with preparations on the guitar, influenced by the ideas of Marcel Duchamps. In the beginning of the 1960's he has been a member of Mike Westbrook's band until his resolution, never to tune the guitar again, made his resignation from the group unavoidable. Since then Rowe is exclusively playing the "table top guitar" - as a soloist, in AMM (up to 2000) and in various other groups." (label info)
