STEFFEN BASHO-JUNGHANS - O SOM NAHA (C90)
Relentlessly beautiful and strangely subtle:
Steffen Basho-Junghans is a painter, composer, virtuoso guitar player and writer. In a career that has now spanned an incredible five decades, Steffen has quietly been composing and performing pieces of startling beauty, pushing the intrument further and further into uncharted territory. From swirling pastoral meditation to dissonant minimalism and beyond, the music bears the mark of an intense technician without ever sacrificing substance for style.
O SOM NAHA is the third instalment in Steffen's "Unknown Music" series and a true assault on tradition and stagnation. Two microphones, two bottles, one night and one steel-string guitar are the ingredients. On the menu, 90 minutes of devotional melody-collapse, and percussive hypno-symphony. A listening experience that is both meditative and challenging awaits, time is swallowed up as the gentlle tick-tock rhythm entrances, disorientates and mesmerises.
Edition of 40, with austere insert and transparent cassettes.
4 quid worldwide - get them while they're hot!
