Description by Eremite:

"represencing is the second installment of the joshua abrams sound world introduced on his 2010 eremite album natural information. & broadly assimilative compositional voice. Sources from traditional musics to minimalism, jazz to krautrock, animate represencing, but Abrams is always grounded in the solidity of true working musicianship & he proves himself an artist fluent not just in styles but traditions. embrace his polyglot approach. goaded (the guimbri is partly constructed from animal-hide) by abrams to focus on a particular facet of their vocabularies, jeff parker & emmett kelly appear as finely contrasting rhythm guitarists, michael zerang gets virtuosic on a tambourine & david boykin devotes himself to altissimo long-tones & circular breathing. others perform more structu ral roles, such as jason stein's bass clarinet, or, as with nicole mitchell's diaphanous choir of flute parts, function as landscape. The moondog-influenced "sungazer" is an aria for tomeka reid's spirited cello. sub "bass, harmonium & organ return as unifying coloristic elementsabrams likens the overall experience to "entering a forest from different directions," & cites as inspirations the AACM, don cherry, arnold dreyblatt, hamza el din, popul vuh, pharaoh sanders, & sandy bull's duets with billy higgins.

any one of these pieces would play fantastically as all-night trance music but abrams opts instead to miniaturize his environments, teasing the open &'endless' forms of the compositions to present poetic episodes that imply sonic vastness. is the ten minute title track, a duo with drummer chad taylor that is a tour de force of two brilliant rhythm players improvising to the omega point.
