Granularities: Scenes From A Trialogue

Read "Scenes From A Trialogue" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Quando l'improvvisazione si fa Epica.

Nato da un progetto specifico, frutto della ricerca svolta da Lawrence Casserley sugli elaboratori di segnale, sviluppatosi attraverso alcuni concerti in ambienti acusticamente suggestivi e perciò previsto inizialmente in una chiesetta situata nei pressi dell'abitazione del musicista inglese, questo lavoro è invece stato registrato nel settembre del 2010 nell'abitazione ...

Lawrence Casserley & Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg: Mouth Wind

Read "Mouth Wind" reviewed by John Eyles

Recorded in May, 2010 at Lawrence Casserley's studio in the Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire, Mouth Wind is a happy pairing of Casserley's signal processing with the idiosyncratic vocals of Belgium's Jean-Michel van Schouwburg, a pairing which benefits both of them greatly. The duo format suits each of the two in a different way; in larger groupings such ...

At the time, it seemed ...

Lawrence Casserley - Adam Linson: Integument

Read "Integument" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Non si può capire appieno Integument se non lo si immerge nelle ricerche dell'immenso (è il caso di dirlo) Lawrence Casserley, compositore, performer, istallatore, improvvisatore britannico, che da anni collabora con Evan Parker.

Lawrence Casserley / Adam Linson: Integument

Read "Integument" reviewed by John Eyles

Lawrence Casserley and Adam Linson have well-established links with Evan Parker and with each other. Both have previous releases on Psi and since 2004 both have been members of Parker's Electro-Acoustic Ensemble. That is highly relevant to the music on Integument as that ensemble features real-time processing of sound, as does this album.

On his solo ...
