Platform, "Anthropocene"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageThe three Norwegian (and one French) artists who make up Platform may play mostly jazz-oriented instruments but the sounds they create are anything but.  Clarinet, cello, piano and drums meld together into a wonderfully jerky, unpredictable free improvised noise.  As mostly a live act, this album may not fully do the sound of them collaborating justice, but it makes for an exceptionally good attempt.

E-mail Print PDF

Not only was Tod Dockstader an important pioneer in the field of electronic music and tape manipulation, but he was also a neighbor and friend, living his last years in the Brainwashed hometown of Arlington, Massachusetts. Dockstader is arguably most famous for his 1960 composition Eight Electronic Pieces, used in the 1969 film Satyricon by Fellini, and most unknowingly famous for the sound effects he created for cartoons such as Tom & Jerry and Mr. Magoo. Other notable compositions included Quatermass from 1964 and Drone from 1962. Dockstader was productive through the early part of this century with the Aerial trilogy surfacing on Sub Rosa between 2004 and 2006.
