The albums currently represented in the playlist are Numbers (CS 201 cd) with Richard Barrett [more info (get the CD)…]; io 0.0.1 beta++ (SLAMCD 531) […]

lively, relevant, dizzying (audio clip: Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park)

This clip is from ‘tolur,’ the track that opens the CD. Does it […]

Le son du grisli: Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park

Do you feel the need for some gargling? convincing? crawling? craziness? dizziness? …or telegraphs? Luc Bouquet’s take, at Le son du grisli, on ‘Numbers’ (CS 201 cd) by Richard Barrett and Han-earl Park: Le gargarisme est convaincant. D’un côté les electronics de Richard Barrett, de l’autre la guitare d’Han-Earl Park. Tous deux grouillent et cisaillent […]

Monsieur Délire: Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park

Catch me if you can! François Couture at Monsieur Délire describes a complex music that moves in multiple directions in his review of Richard Barrett and Han-earl Park’s ‘Numbers’ (CS 201 cd): Electronician Richard Barrett (of Furt) and guitarist Han-earl Park are working together to create music both spontaneous and premeditated, music that launches into […]

CD reviews: Mathilde 253

First set of reviews of Mathilde 253 (SLAMCD 528) including a very nice piece from Guillaume Belhomme: La mise en place inquiète (Hayward au mélodica) donnait quelques indices sur la teneur de l’entière improvisation : réfléchie, et dans laquelle les intervenants rivalisent de subtilités (Park érodant les reliefs de plaintes aux volumes variés, Smith au […]
