Descriptions, Reviews, &c.
The back cover cryptically reads "simplistic assumptions about a reduction of measurable standards and a drive towards musical (read technical) virtuosity. The ability to make one simple sound have a devastating aural and emotional impact is undervalued (attacked) because 'anyone could' (in theory) 'do it'. Thus it undervalues expertise."-Iamasblankasafart. Indeed, Dorgon has done just that through his career, but any attempt to characterize his work will inevitably fail as he shifts from idea to idea. This release is a 45 minute track that restructures and loops the work of Tibetan or Balinese artists (no source is given), a track that deceptively attacks over and over again. It is an intense piece of clangorous callings and deep horns, a violent and groaning work that simply cuts off at the end. Of course Dorgon would 'do it'...

For Jason Viseltear
Jason Viseltear, based in NYC, makes violins, violas, and cellos for both contemporary and period / baroque performance. Inexplicably, Mr. Dorgon dedicated this work to him, a piece of sound and noise, perhaps constructed using string instruments; perhaps not.

My Hands Around Yer Neck
Sinister looping and shimmering works from Mr. Dorgon taking on the trumpet - or at least, a dead trumpeter: an unusual homage to cool dead player Miles Davis.
