Robin Hayward, "Stop Time"

E-mail Print PDF

cover image The cover for Stop Time is meant to convey the nature of the tool used to compose it, an invention of Robin Hayward’s called the Hayward Tuning Vine. The idea behind it is to spatialize (and colorize) the relationship between just intervals played, in this case, on a baritone saxophone, a cello, and a microtonal tuba. At the performance from which this album is drawn, each instrumentalist was illuminated in a color corresponding to the pitch he played on the Vine. If the pitch shifted, so did the color. Those pitches were in turn fed to a surround-sound system and projected into different parts of the performance space. In the move to recorded medium, the spatial-visual element is partially flattened, making the slow accrual of rhythm, texture, and harmony the music’s driving feature.

Public Speaking, "Caress, Redact"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageSome of Jason Anthony Harris' previous recordings as Public Speaking have flirted with more traditional song-like material, but would just as often end up being more in line abstract and chaotic world of noise.  For this newest album, however, it seems as if he has settled more comfortably into the role of songwriter, and here, across these seven pieces, he creates a dark, at times very disturbing world presented as off-kilter, bizarre electronic pop.

Alan Vega, 1938-2016

E-mail Print PDF

2016 has claimed yet another undeniably important musician of our lifetime. We are all heartbroken at the loss of Alan Vega here at Brainwashed and are thankful for his years of contribution to music, challenging not only the institution of pop and rock, but even challenging the conventions within the punk scene of the '70s, most significantly alongside Martin Rev in Suicide. Vega remained active in music both with Suicide and other collaborations through last year and our hearts go out to his family and friends.
