Here , is a fresh rip ( this was blogged as mp's... 256 i think..18 months ago or so) of Tony Oxley's Masterpiece of electro acoustic improv..'Ichnos'.
Still Relevant , it hasn't dated one jot.... the third of Oxley's great trilogy for major labels, the preceding records being 'the baptised traveller' and 'Four Compositions for sextet... both still available on one CD to my knowledge.. and highly recommended.
Ichnos features more(than previously) of Oxley's , subtle creative use of contact microphones and feedback.
once again its difficult to separate out the tracks , and best listened to as one sequence.
this is the same line up as 4 compositions, with Barry Guy replacing Jeff Clyne.
Evan Parker, tenor saxophone
Paul Rutherford, trombone
Kenny Wheeler, trumpet/fluegelhorn
Derek Bailey, guitar
Barry Guy, db
Tony Oxley, drums.
click on the back cover for the album notes...
again I've used magix declicking ( LIGHT)
THANKS TO BOROMIR FOR THE RIP AND SCANS!
