christian wolfarth ~ acoustic solo percussion volumes 1-4
I am distributing the first four volumes of Chrisitian Wolfarth's Acoustic Solo Percussion 7" vinyl, released on hiddenbell records in 2009 and 2010.
These are a series of four solo percussion works. Note that the records are played at 45 r.p.m.
They are essentially miniature studies in the possibilities of sounds generated acoustically with drums and cymbals. Without that information, you would very likely guess the sound sources derive, at least in part, from electronics, post-editing and other enhanced effects.
Apart from confounding expectations as to how the sounds were made, the pieces are of interest for their concentrated structure, weave and flow, and subversive assemblage.
Please indicate which of the volumes you are ordering. I am not adding shipping charges; my interest is solely in getting this project into a few more hands.
Finally, in the interest of consumer transparency, please note all four records are of relatively short duration, averaging 4-7 minutes per side.
