Notes

Procession Of Shadows

Working on the project and going through some older material reminded of why much of it has remained unreleased. These 3 works included here had been at some point scheduled to be put out on my Pogus label – but newer work of mine eventually shoved them aside. So it is very nice to have the opportunity to make these pieces available.

I worked at a book publisher for a year around 1991 and one of my co-workers, Jay Noya, became a very good friend of mine. He is a writer and poet and “O The Dead Man” is one of a number of texts of his I set to music. So far the only other piece of ours available is “Railway Station Fire” on the I, Angelica cd. There are certain pieces of mine that are created because there is a specific problem I want to deal with and some of the works come about because of opportunity – to work with a writer or a certain musician or instrument. “O The Dead Man” was because of having access to a writer who was interested in having his work set to music. Adam Klein (who thankfully replace my vocals with his) is an opera singer who in the past has worked with Robert Ashley.

“R.IsmV.1G2P” is part of a set of 4 works all based on the same original 8 track material. “R.IsmV.1” and “R.IsmV.2” are tape pieces – the same material in different mixes. “R.IsmV. 1G2P” is the tape piece plus guitar and 2 pianos and “R.IsmV.2PF” is the second version of the tape piece with piano and sampled flute. To date only “R.IsmV.1” has been available – released on the Anckarstrom series that CM Von Hausswolff of Sweden did in the early 1990s. It is very good to have the chance to get this version out and hopefully will also down the line make available the other 2 recordings as well.

“Shadows” is a piece that I did when someone had actually left their accordion in my house for awhile and I wanted to work with it. The underlying tape part is of a piano recording being played backwards.
