The Great Architect quartet, radical sonic experiments with a free jazz approach referencing Anthony Braxotn and Art Ensemble, in a limited screen printed LP.

Great Architect

Great Architect: [VINYL] (Kinnikinnik)
Label: Kinnikinnik    
Released in: USA    

"Recorded in the heart of darkness. Is it jazz? Is it punk? Radical left wing sonic experiments. For fans of Anthony Braxton and Art Ensemble of Chicago and goodness."

"Great Architect was formed in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2009, as an improvising group intent on exploring the fringes of all musics with an urgency and focus reflective of the modern condition. Originally a quartet, the lineup expanded to a sextet in early 2010.

Gradually, an emphasis on composition and structure came to the fore and Great Architect began turning out loose-limbed tunes that deal with a wide variety of topics: high-school fistfights overseen by teachers, slain South American revolutionaries, mendacity, pagan mythologies, the beautiful violence of calligraphy, kale, the Fantastic Four, and Amelia Earhart, among others....

Great Architect continues to be committed to experimentation. They have appeared in a 'Death Star' configuration - a 20-person group, largely guitarists, augmenting the core band - playing re-imagined versions of their music. In November of 2010, they performed their original score for The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1922), the earliest animated feature film, at Charlotte's Neighborhood Theatre."-Great Architect website
