seeing as we were talking about the Toshiba/Japanese government funded conspiracy to put Midori Takada on everyones youtube reccomendations i thought it would be good to open it out and get some reccomendations for other good percussion based albums outdie of Midori and Mkwaju Ensemble. there's cleve pozar, solo percussion, thats a good un and theres this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daBsXcdvcN0

I know it's not PC but I love the raw percussive sound of Cut Hands, although i'm guessing that's electronics as opposed to actual percussion instruments. Same with Shackleton (a more PC choice).

Also, don't forget Ant Music, Bow Wow Wow and Test Department! ;)

Baschet brothers instruments and sound sculptures look better than they sound, at least judging by the records I've heard - they try a little too hard to make proper music on them. (Probably that's the fault of the Lasrys though, being proper musicians). Some good moments in this video though.

a tribute piece to avant-percussion luminary Paul Burwell by Fergus Kelly, made available this very week on the tenth anniversary of Burwell's death

<iframe width="100%" height="450" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/306008861&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_ comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false&amp;vi sual=true"></iframe>

here's what he wrote about the piece, which is ruddy clangorous. The list of his sources at the end include quite a few percussion-work notables incidentally.

May a great noise fill the air !

'Napalm Calypso' was composed to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Paul Burwell's death. It was created with a mixture of his solo work and work with the Bow Gamelan, interview material and slices of some of his favourite music and exerpts from films and TV shows he enjoyed.

The solo extracts are taken from his 1979 album, 'A Mummified Person With A Pleasant Smile Is Kept In A Cupboard In The Vestry'. The Bow Gamelan material is taken from a documentary about the 'Offshore Rig' performance of 1987, made for Channel 4 arts programme Alter Image, some footage of them performing on the concrete barges at Rainham Marshes in 1986, and from my own bootleg of the 'In C And Air' performance at the ICA in 1986, some of which includes Paul talking to me afterwards.

It also includes my field recording of tidal wash at the Forty Foot in Sandycove, Co. Dublin in June 2016, with foghorns sounding. Dublin Bay as stand-in for Thames Estuary. The latter being a place where Paul & Bow Gamelan did various gigs. Water was also my means of transport between Ireland and England when working in London in the 1980s, as I used to travel by boat from Dunlaoghaire to Holyhead, so it forms part of my initial connection between Dublin and London and between Paul and myself. Before cheap air travel. Before internet and mobile phones. Less clutter, less distraction.

Paul loved Kung Fu movies and Westerns and was a big fan (like myself) of Apocalypse Now, which I've sprinkled liberally throughout the piece. The film soundtrack includes some great explosions, which are entirely in keeping with Bow Gamelan's penchant for using fireworks as a form of percussion. Someone once memorably described Bow Gamelan as 'like a cross between Turner and Apocalypse Now'. I like how the sound effects in the film creates a deep, widescreen sense of landscape, with the constant battering ram of near and distant shelling puncturing the air.

I only met Paul a couple of times, so I hardly knew him, but I took to him straight away. I liked the cut of his jib. His friendliness, openness and free-spirited nature was inspiring. When I re-watch Bow Gamelan footage for the nth time and see him interviewed I feel a great fondness for him. This piece is a tribute to that - my way of saying, 'Thanks Paul'.

Some of the elements in this piece are woven deep in the mix, and won't necessarily reveal themselves on first listen. Other elements move around the stereo field to create a sense of momentum in a soundworld I like to think of more in terms of a radio play or cinema for the ears.

Therefore, it must be heard connected to a proper amp/speaker set up or headphones (not computer speakers) with good stereo separation.

Thanks to Anne Bean and David Toop for suggesting the sources, which include:.

Film:
Apocalypse Now (1979)
The One-Armed Swordsman (1967)
Kwaidan (1964)
Woman In The Dunes (1964)
Bad Day At Blackrock (1955)
Rashomon (1950)

TV:
Hancock's Half Hour
Dad's Army

Music:
Baby Dodds drum improvisations
Buddy Rich drum solo
Jet Harris & Tony Meehan: Diamonds
One String Sam: I Need 100 Dollars
Screaming Jay Hawkins: I Put A Spell On You
Albert Ayler: Ghosts
Roderick MacLeod performing the Scottish piobaireachd, 'Old Men Of The Shells'

Radio:
Orson Welles narrating Joseph Conrad's 'Heart Of Darkness'.

pastry face or pasty face? the latter is truer, the former is a wonderful image

i don't hink anyone had pony-tails during the postpunk era, but otherwise your stereotype is pretty on the money

pastryface i made up and put in an early poem on heronbone.

seminarians. Cimmerians. aquariums.
pastry-faced.
corpulent woodpigeons. corpuscular rodents. rambunctious pheasant. ambitious geese. duplicitous lobster. virulent lettuce. sinuous nosebleed. crapulent fur.
corrosive valentine.
i felt sad when i found it, just a few days ago in a JH Prynne poem. (of sanguine fire)

Swift as a face rolled away like
pastry, turned up the stairwell oh
cough now room for two &
faced with bodily attachments:
evidence hovers like biotic soup, all
transposable, all like. The pastry
face takes the name Pie (crust folded
like wings over the angelic sub-
strate, all so like pasties they
hover again), is younger by a
specific aim.
coinicidently cimmerians also figure in a prynne poem (Aristeas, in seven years’)

the tarasov is really great, particularly between about the 15 and 20 minute marks. the byrne is good too, specuially before the voice comes in. Bobby hutcherson gotcha=good. Also the varese and the laraaj is lovely. Fergus kelly is good fun. Stalker is tje my favourite film apart from the matrix and that's the best scene in it...

Locked in is a the right phrase and the key to a lot of stuff. On the corner repelled me until one day headphones and high I got locked in (black satin, posted earlier here) and it was irresistible. Ditto with wii2 off dark magus where the drums were overpowering and did such strange things to time.

insects make music - or at least communicative sounds - percussively

Graeme Revell made an album entirely (so it's claimed anyway) out of insect sounds: The Insect Musicians

Loving the vintage industrial from PilHead, I have to say.

In a similar vein, this F242 remix utterly slays:

the middle bit of this - just drums, percussion, whooshing sounds, orgasmic moans - is killer

starts about 1.20, goes to about 3.05

oddly nobody on Youtube seems to have isolated the percussadelic break in "whole lotta love" and looped it for an hour

and this - isolated percuss track - isn't nearly as good without all the phantasmic sound shivers weaved through it

two recent records i like, both explore the area between improvisation and almost techno-like rhythms, both are intimate and (mostly) quiet.

the first is andrea belfi from milan who has released stuff on die schachtel and smaller labels. his latest marries photography and music, hence the book and the preview below is one piece of several which can be found here (https://iikki.bandcamp.com/album/alveare).


https://vimeo.com/199181414

the second is eli keszler of nyc (i think), also in the same sort of cavernous space as the belfi though a bit less restrained. the record can be heard/bought here (https://emptyeditions.bandcamp.com/album/ee001-last-signs-of-speed) and below is a sample of one piece:
