  • Availability:

The original is a work released on CD by Headz in 2005Improved Sequence reoccurs in LP.

This work is a collaboration between David Grubbs, who is also familiar as the central figure of Gastr Del Sol, and Nikos Veliotis, an Athens cellist. Side A contains a light piano and a drone work using a curved bow to play all strings evenly, and side B contains two drone works using an organ and an e-bow piano.

Improved Sequence:

"The Harmless Dust is a unique release in the discographies of both David Grubbs and the Athens-based cellist Nikos Veliotis (Mohammad). In 2005 the duo were on tour in the US in support of Grubbs's album A Guess at the Riddle when they took a most productive break at John McEntire's Soma Studios, over the course of a day laying down something utterly different from the song-based set they were playing most evenings. The Harmless Dust presents the same composition in two arrangements: one for piano and cello (played) with a curved bow that makes it possible to sound multiple strings simultaneously) and the other for Hammond organ and multi-tracked e-bowed piano. What resulted are worlds within sound worlds, within whirls, within whorls, without words. The piece was first performed live in Tokyo and then released on CD in Japan by the Headz label; this is its first release on LP, with new discography by Nikos Veliotis from the same series that yielded the original design.
