geoff mullen “alone and in a room” c35 cassette
- alone and in a room (1)
- alone and in a room (2)
- alone and in a room (3)
|june 2012 release ; ... achingly gorgeous crackle & tone-float antics from geoff, sourced to a trilogy of live dates in brook-lyne, brook-linn, and jurassic park over the past year ...|
... without resorting to my usual stream of hyperbolically-infused profanity every time someone has the wise-beyond-their-years idea to issue summa geoff’s gelt, i’ll say that ... if you dug “accidental guitars” over, say, the recent draft tape, then this is continuation for you ...
absolutely impeccable, canonically perfect music ... highly recommended !!!
ek55-geoff mullen "alone and in a room" c35
a collection of live performances by providence, rhode island's geoff mullen. his first solo release for ekhein following a recent string of releases on the rel and draft labels. featuring sets at cafe fixe, zebulon, and the aviary as well as percussion sources by eli keszler (who features geoff on his recent "cold pin" lp on pan).
blurring the lines between tape collage and live instrumentation, mullen is no stranger to improvisation in the live setting, performing in many groups and collaborations over the years (and just recently going on his first european tour). his talent for creating minimal, at times deeply chaotic tension, yet maintaining complete control is without a doubt on full display here.
