The Worlds of Ignaz Schick

Read "The Worlds of Ignaz Schick" reviewed by Mark Corroto

It may be a bit of hyperbole to call Ignaz Schick a Renaissance man. If, though, we take architect Leon Battista Alberti's (1404-72) definition “a man can do all things if he will," then labeling Schick with that epithet is not such a stretch. The German composer, musician, turntablist, visual artist, label chief, and inventor has ...

The Vampires: Nightjar

Read "Nightjar" reviewed by Pat Youngspiel

Australian saxophonist Jeremy Rose's admiration for minimalist trio The Necks is of great depth, to the extent that he published an essay on the group, entitled “Memory and Mindfulness in the Musical Rituals of the Necks," examining musical ritualistic practices “beyond the African American realm capable of scaffolding transcendent experience." And he is not the only ...

The Necks: Three

Read "Three" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

With their stubbornly spiky, hold-onto-your-hat mindset firmly rooted, a high fever runs wild on Three, The Necks' twenty-first release in its thirty-three year, unhindered-by-genre career. It starts like most of the trio's existential, kaleidoscopic excursions do: some minimalist point of blurred melodic frenzy is acted upon and the rest becomes an amalgam of theory and system... ...

The Necks: Three

Read "Three" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Live performances by Australian free-improvising trio The Necks typically take the form of a single, slowly growing and morphing mass of sound.
