Recommended & Related Releases:
Juice Machine
Broken And Dilapidated
(Love Earth Music)
An apt description for the layers of sonic decay and deteriorated sounds, loops and errata that underpin each of the five tracks on this elusively restrained noise album, Juice Machine, aka Roger H. Smith (Chefkirk) and Heather Chessman, use mangled field recordings and concrete elements of blurred looping structures and aberrant interjection, each unique work a fascinating curiosity.
Brighton, Ian
Marsh Gas [REISSUE]
(FMR)
Reissuing the 1977 album from UK guitarist Ian Brighton, written as an instrumental story for children, apparently very sophisticated children, in a mix of composed and freely improvised passages, using non-idiomatic approaches with unusual and extended techniques, open atmospheric passages and strange transitions, a peculiar and wonderful album of imaginative playing.
Spontaneous Music Ensemble
Low Profile
(Emanem)
The 1977 Derby concert performance by the SME quartet with John Stevens (percussion, cornet, voice), Nigel Coombes (violin), Colin Wood (cello) & Roger Smith (guitar), with a tribute to Anton Webern, plus concert recordings as a trio.
Other Recommended Releases:
Chefkirk
Giant Size
(Love Earth Music)
Eight distinctive works for electronics and sound from the alter ego of Roger H. Smith, using noise, percussive elements and unusual synthetics, layered around static and arpeggiated rhythms and punctuated with strange asides, the works run from 3:14 to 18:37 and were developed over a year and half; an excellent introduction to the sonic diversity Chefkirk revels in.
