... thanks for everyone's patience during the move !!! while it did take about a week longer than scheduled to get even the most basic elements of mms up & running again (i.e. records back on the shelves [in order !!!] ; packing & shipping bench upright & operational) we can safely say that things are finally getting back to normal around here ...

... we're just about caught up with invoicing & shipping orders placed during our closure & we've started opening up the dozens of boxes of new titles that arrived in our absence, updating the site here to show all of the new arrival & restock activities over the past few weeks (scanner & stereo are still boxed up, so full workups are still pending) ...

... as a token of appreciation to everyone that helped us out by placing a "closeout" order in the days leading up to the move (and due to a number of requests for more time to properly investigate / strategize a more thorough sweep of the dwindling list of titles on offer) i've extended the exhaustive "closeoupacolypse" one final time until the end of the spring ; this should afford everyone the proper resources to make their final selections ...

  • cardamom (8:15)
  • vanilla (7:45)

  • myrrh (10:18)
  • basil (5:13)
  • sage (4:15)
  • sandalwood (5:28)
january 2010 release ; heated duo exchange between percussionist tatsuya nakatani & trumpeter forbes graham ... tons of “sculptural” playing (tatsuya’s prepared percussion is always a treat, forbes regularly playing his instrument sans-mouthpiece, yielding some fine tube-resonance overtones - listen to the sound-sample) ...

the seven immaculately recorded, real-time interchanges here range from amm-esque extended-technique meltdowns to some straight, rhythmically propulsive “fire music” ... recording quality is crystal clear (a studio date such as this is especially notable in this day of minidisc room-recordings of sparsely-attended gigs as albums ; they tend to leap right out of the speakers) ...

blaq002 - tatsuya nakatani/forbes graham “essences” cd

a recording of a meeting between trumpet player forbes graham and percussionist tatsuya nakatani, essences is shamanic, ceremonial, and yet urgent. nakatani is practically orchestral on this disc, wielding an arsenal of bells, bowls, and gongs. graham switches between trumpet and piccolo trumpet, although most would be hard pressed to tell which he is playing. starting off in a meditative, sonorous state and building to a pattering panoply of rhythms, essences is an exploration of the folding and unfolding of mysteries and secrets.

forbes grahami won’t stop” compact disc

  • drowned
  • this is the key
  • in my dreams
  • heaven
  • we won't stop
  • echoes
  • ghost howls
  • for you, lily
may 2008 release ; first proper disc from boston-area trumpeter / computer-musician forbes graham, recently seen in improvised-music group(ing)s with weasel walter, tatsuya nakatani, etc ... as well as playing on records by metal/indie/core bands like kayo dot, ehnahre, irepress, the red chord, infidel?/castro!, love life, & the one am radio ...

nestled somewhere between a trumpet recital and a mego-lineage harsh computer-music set, this music covers a lot of ground, starting with the sequenced rhythms & overloaded blare of “drowned” & continuing in wildly erratic form through the albums almost maryanne amacher-esque “for you, lily” (listen to the sound-sample) ...

along with greg kelley, forbes is doing great work in liberating the trumpet from its “fanfare” origins ... a great disc for the short-attention-span set, housed in a clear amaray with an insert (detailed below) ...

blaq001 - forbes graham “i won’t stop” cd

combining material from “everybody’s gone” and newer tracks “drowned”, “echoes”, and “ghost howls”, avant trumpeter forbes graham’s newest release “i won’t stop” successfully traverses multiple genres. modern improvisation meets noise, glitchy electronics, noise, and more on this cd.
