Four track C20 with riso printed J-card and unique, hand drawn and signed insert.
Very limited C20 featuring new work from the brilliant David ‘Nein’ Rodere.Top-notch lopsided, contemporary art music in the tradition of Dominik Steiger, Anton Heyboer, Kai Althoff, et al… but delivered with a unique sense of melody and texture.
At the time of recording David had reworked his previous tapes into a (forthcoming) Horn of Plenty LP and hit a quiet patch;
…it was like I drained myself of that particular energy.
At some point I warmed to playing again, as long as it was very of the moment and made up on the spot. These are some examples of that approach, with a little prep for the long ones so they’d be easier on someone else’s ear. So those two are not ‘real’ improvised I guess, esp. since I wrote down a list of colours and adjectives for the last one.
With those long ones, I thought I’d just keep taking them in circles until they collapsed on themselves, which is a thing I sometimes look for in other people’s music.”
All music by David Roeder and played on guitars only
Extra vocals on “Spring on Jahn” by J.A. Hagan
