Burn / Thomas / Fell: The Middle Distance (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: Greece/UK    


"The Middle Distance - featuring Simon H Fell (bass), and pianists Chris Burn and Philip Thomas - draws on a bountiful reservoir of experimental histories. Thomas is known for his performances of Cage and 'complexity' composers like Michael Finnissy; in 1993 Burn issued a disc of piano music by pioneering American composer Henry Cowell, although his interest in composed means has been overshadowed by his reputation as an improvisor. Thomas, playing prepared piano, remains sonically distinst from Burn, but the music manages a noticeably unified soundworld. Fell leaves conventional bass rhetoric far behind as the musicians consciously match up their timbres; at 2'55" on track four, their extended techniques flow into a microtonal patois that trashes instrumental allegiance."-Philip Clark, The Wire
