Ostertag, Bob: Verbatim (Red Note)
Label: Red Note    
Released in: The Netherlands    

Frith, Zorn and Minton cohort Bob Ostertag has worked extensively with computers and sampling, creating unexpected and extremely unusual results. Verbatim is the middle portion of a series of three releases that Ostertag created to explore the relationship between man and technology. Say No More was the first part, an improvisation between drummer Gerry Hemmingway, vocalist Phil Minton and bassist Mark Dresser. Ostertag recorded, sampled and rearranged the improvisations on a computer to create a new arrangement. He then gave that arrangement to the same trio and asked them to learn it as a performance piece. That was then recorded and the process was repeated multiple times, the results of which were used by Ostertag to create Verbatim. The project culminated in Verbatim Flesh and Blood, a live performance of the final Verbatim composition. Challenging the concepts of improvisation and composition, Verbatim is a fascinating and unusual work.
