Original Silence
The First Original Silence

Original Silence: The First Original Silence (Smalltown Superjazzz)
Label: Smalltown Superjazzz    
Released in: Norway    


High intensity live improv bringing together members of Sonic Youth, The Ex, Thing Action Jazz and Zu.

"Those inclined toward improvised music can usually find something worthwhile in all forms of it. But even the most blindly faithful recognize when a session shoots so high that it sounds more like a rocket than a record. The First Original Silence is that kind of instant attention-grabber. Original Silence use the same tools as many improv groups: rolling percussion, squawking horns, guitar feedback, and scraggly electronic noise. But these six sound-crushers have added some sort of performance-enhancing drug, injecting their sound with energy rare to any music, improvised or otherwise.

[...]

Long improv tracks have become such a cliché that they often seem doomed to fail. But Original Silence attacks these two epics like sprints instead of marathons, and The First Original Silence proves you don't have to stop playing to catch your breath."-Marc Masters, Pitchfork Media
