Kuchen, Martin: Det Forsvunnas Namn [VINYL] (thanatosis produktion)

Using baritone and alto saxophones, speakers and an iPod, Swedish improviser Martin Kuchen (Angles, Exploding Customer, UNSK, Looper, &c) takes his listeners on a demented tour of extended technique and curiously unexpected sounds from the saxophone, focusing on textures and non-abrasive approaches to create an abundance of unexpected and oddly engaging, concise improvisations.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"To claim that Lund-based saxophonist Martin Küchen deals with jazz on the new album Det försvunnas navn ( out now via Thanatosis ) is both simplified and almost incorrect. To say that the soundscapes he builds are avant-garde and belong to the abstract improvisational music is closer to the truth, but is also simplified. And Küchen's music is anything but simple. Sure, jazz is reminded of songs like " I " and " The 5th of December 1931 02.00 AM", And the avant-garde attitude echoes throughout the album - not least thanks to Küchen's total disinterest in creating melodies, being compliant or inviting the listener to the obvious. No, Küchen's world is dark and terribly crooked. Moods are at a higher rate than melodies, and the instruments can be used in so many more ways than you think. The darkness and the skew on the plate are reminiscent of Scott Walker's most unpleasant moments in masterpieces such as Tilt and The Drift. Martin Küchen is moving somewhere - in an impressive and hypnotic mix of dark moods and noises."-482 MHz (translated by Google)
