Cantrell, Oren: Kobzir LP
Kobzir is a collection of vocal overtone recordings made for an unrealized film project by Oren Cantrell. Inspired by Gurdjieff's Fourth Way, the four pieces sit comfortably within the deep-listening practices of The Theatre of Eternal Music, Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, Yoshi Wada, Takehisa Kosugi and Phill Niblock. Although clearly a child of microtones, Oren's voice is shrouded in contemporary robes woven from modular electronics, muted trumpet, and layers of shimmering percussion. This is immersive music of the highest order, a sound-bath for the ages. Limited edition of 100 LPs with risograph printed covers.
