another installment in the excellent Stallplaat series, thanks to Kalli. first section is delicate and sparse guitar work, second is a vibrating electro-static drone.
Oren Ambarchi - MORT AUX VACHES
Song of Separation Parts 1-6
solo guitar recorded at VPRO Studios june 10th 2001
another gorgeous guitar/electronics recording belonging in the same play-list as the Sugimoto/Drumm album posted earlier. but then again, all of the improv I will post here, to reiterate, will be in this muted, meditative vein. no skronk-fests here. thanks to nphominoid.
Tetuzi Akiyama + Jason Kahn - Til We Meet Again
(For 4 Ears, CD1654) (Switzerland)
Tetuzi Akiyama: acoustic guitar
Jason Kahn: percussion, analog synthesizer
selection of pieces from a festival of music that Otomo curated, varied and wonderful contributions from some key players - free improvisation, electro-acoustic, field recording, noise (not the violent kind), and even a few beats here and there. wish I was there...

from grasprelease: Not exactly completely improvised, but this was a big favorite of mine for quite a while. Some high frequencies to deal with: be forewarned. But nothing terribly brutal.
