It’s actually amazing how Miami can be as much Noir as NYC - from the vibes of Miami Vice to the unofficial city motto “A sunny place for shady people”. Palm trees at night are very Noir, too. Here you have best of both worlds - compositions conceived in Miami and recorded in NYC with the bridge of Noir Jazz.
22 minutes of a Drone / Experimental Suite that builds itself from Minimalism (think La Monte Young, early Terry Riley) through noise and feedback (think Lou Reed's Metal machine Music, early Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca) to almost Modern Classical composition - all of it with the distinctive NYC No-Wave feel. This one is MASSIVE.
An exercise in reductionism and minimalism, an attempt to remove ego from the art, an attempt to elevate guitar expressionism to the purest form ever without touching a single fret and plucking a single string. Huge thanks to ZT Amplifiers for creating Lunchbox amp that can run off 9V batteries, Godin Guitars for creating A6 Ultra, Tascam for portable recording equipment and GameChanger Audio for Light Pedal. Special thanks to all insects, trees and wind participating in this recording.
Such a great tribute to gone but not forgotten Julee Cruise. It's such an honor to be able to contribute an opening (and the closing, too) tracks for this brilliant Dark Jazz release. Thank you Adriano for organizing and releasing this one!
