---------------------------

Edition of 50.

"The fifth release in Linear Obsessional's Cassette Imprint is this scintilating collection of pieces by the Texan musician Jeff Larson. Using his four-track recorder Larson piles up the simple phrases of his guitar into dense enveloping washes of juddering mesmerising sound. extent the early minimalist experiments of the 1970's minimalists, but with an almost punky DIY texture and urgency. "

-------------

"What we hear on this tape, the fifth release on LOR's relatively new cassette series, is the sound of his Telecaster subjected to various processing techniques, which to my untrained mind may have involved varispeeding, overdubs, loops, and backwards-tapes (however) That technique is called in digital terms). While the above case histories may have led one to expect something rather noisy and unkempt, this music has quite a professional sheen, is expertly performed, and not too many bumps in the road; despite label notes claiming a “punky DIY texture” in the music, many tracks are more like a bedroom version of Frippertronics – which is actually a good avenue to be exploring. On the other hand, the opening track has a breathless rate and incredibly density of clustered notes that will endear it to fans of Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca, almost as if Larson were trying to recreate a massed guitar orchestra all by himself in order to illustrate a point to a sceptical audience.
