descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Sound waves for the end of times… Listening to this last opus of experimental music, one cannot stop thinking of Iannis Xenakis's La Légende d'Eer. Eer dies, visits the dregs, and comes back to life. Berthiaume and Sharp follow a similar path, through the transubstantiation of their guitars into sonic implements. The growing intensity emanating from Xenakis's composition is reflected, 30 years later, in these 11 rather reverential improvisations. BASE is constructed, deconstructed, then reconstructed into a wall of sounds ranging from the awakening through to experimentation, then toward a final concerto, a kind of syncopated scream from the instruments. Hell is definitely worth worrying about. Let's be good and lend an ear."-Serge Abiaad, Ambiances Magnetiques


Artist Biographies:

"Elliott Sharp is an American multi-instrumentalist, composer, and performer.

A central figure in the avant-garde and experimental music scene in New York City for over 30 years, Elliott Sharp has released over eighty-five recordings ranging from orchestral music to blues, jazz, noise, no wave rock, and techno music. He leads the projects Carbon and Orchestra Carbon, Tectonics, and Terraplane and has pioneered ways of applying fractal geometry, chaos theory, and genetic metaphors to musical composition and interaction.

His collaborators have included Radio-Sinfonie Frankfurt; pop singer Debbie Harry; Ensemble Modern; Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan; Kronos String Quartet; Ensemble Resonanz; cello innovator Frances Marie Uitti; blues legends Hubert Sumlin and Pops Staples; pipa virtuoso Min-Xiao Feng; jazz greats Jack deJohnette, Oliver Lake, and Sonny Sharrock; multimedia artists Christian Marclay and Pierre Huyghe; and Bachir Attar, leader of the Master Musicians Of Jajouka.

Sharp is a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow, and a 2014 Fellow at Parson's Center for Transformative Media. He received the 2015 Berlin Prize in Musical Composition from the American Academy in Berlin. He has composed scores for feature films and documentaries; created sound-design for interstitials on The Sundance Channel, MTV and Bravo networks; and has presented numerous sound installations in art galleries and museums. He is the subject of a new documentary "Doing The Don't" by filmmaker Bert Shapiro."-Elliott Sharp
