12" black vinyl - 2023 repress. Comes with DL code.

Freedom To Spend:

"Neil S. Kvern's Doctor Dancing Mask: Pianoisms is a near mythical marker on the map of late 20th century experimentalism transpiring in America's Pacific Northwest. A sublime, spacious effort of left field DIY minimalism constructed from recurring piano pieces, hypnotic percussion, and a peppering of diverse instrumentation, vocals, and invisible effects, Doctor Dancing Mask illuminates a hidden but remarkable legacy of a young composer at the height of his creativity and consciousness.

Originally released in 1983 as a small cassette edition largely distributed to friends and via word of mouth, Neil S. Kvern's Doctor Dancing Mask: Pianoisms arrives again January 27, 2023 on vinyl and digitally as part of uncommon¢ (“uncommon sense”), an open-ended, serialized endeavor from Freedom to Spend that provides new meaning for rarefied recordings from music's outermost fringe."

Mastered by Carl Saff
Design by WWFG

NSK: piano, tambour, marimba, recorder, desk lamp, metal fish, voice, effects
Constance Maytum: second voice on “Some Travelers Said to a Peasant Girl”
Charlie Spear: guitar on “Mirror Road”
Glenn McNutt: drums on “I'm Losing It”
Craig Kvern: temple blocks on “I'm Losing It”

Words in “The Conclusion” are from a poem by William Bronk
