Tsahar, Assif & The New York Underground Orchestra: the labyrinth (Hopscotch Records)
Label: Hopscotch Records    
Released in: USA    

Tsahar's New York Underground Orchestra with an all-star set of Downtown New York players including Okkyung Lee, Oscar Noriega, Matt Lavelle, Tatsuya Nakatani, &c. &c.

"The labyrinth is infinite, encompassing all sound and movement throughout time. It's endless corridors sprawling across existence. Criss-crossing paths all leading to themseles as every moment is a beginning and and end. These spider-webs of sound, shape and colour unfolding onto themsevles, their invisible knots covering space. As a weird nightmare where we follow our-sevles being followed by ourselves. Behind these walls we can hear each other's fears. Wanderer's foot prints, a maze of dots and lines mapping a score for a symphony. These musical petroglyphs are embedded in our bones the skeleton of histories death and tradition. This music is a dream it defies reality."-Assif Tsahar, from the liner notes.
