Jared C. Balogh : A Change Equals A Rest [enrmp393]

“Album by Jared C. Balogh, pushing his jazz and avant-garde influences to a more classical composition album. The tracks invoke the vulnerable uncertainty of falling in love again, inner doubt, introspective reflection, expectations of wanting to connect with someone and being afraid of taking the next step.”

Massimo Discepoli & Daniel Barbiero : An Eclipse of Images [AT053]

“The seven multilayered pieces presented here are hybrids meticulously built up of acoustic and electronic elements both composed and improvised. Synthesizing a complex relationship of lyricism and abstraction, acoustic double bass and drums define melodic and rhythmic figures against an ambient field constructed of electronic textures. The emergent sound is a weave of modallyinflected melodies floating over propulsive, intricate rhythms and harmonic blocks carved out of electronic matter.”

crawl to joplin missouri. romance the city. breathe in the stories of devastation. the black mold in the rubble. explain your own devestation. present to the town. in a general assembly. a project called the great tornado hunt. recruit whoever wants to join you to chase down a tornado, blow it up with dynamite. this should be as heroic and futile as possible. this might replace the trauma. it might not.
take your grandmother’s watch out to a dry lake bed. at one of the old nuclear test sites. set it on top a case of dynamite. rupture the frozen time out of the watch. into a million new trajectories. it may create a new monument. releasing you from two interlaced traumas and black holes that have spun their way into your psyche. into the landscape. an eye for an eye. arrythmia. disruption. it might not. maybe not.”
