P16.D4でも知られる大ベテランRalf Wehowskyの4年振りのヴァイナル。以前より構想のあった"葬儀の音楽"を実現したもので、演奏にはSelektion、Another Timbre、Potlatchからも出している名サックスプレイヤーBhob Raineyを指名。救い様がない程の暗黒持続音がドロドロと垂れ流されるサックスとは思えない異常な音色と動き。
When Bhob Rainey had moved to new orleans late in the first decennium of the 2000´s we were talking about an eventual new collaboration. The idea to work with the confrontation of New Orleans based jazz funeral music versus the european tradition of composed funeral music came up and sank down no later than bhob´s next move - to Philadelphia. Nevertheless i felt fascinated by plunging into the funeral theme and laid down some drafts of pieces. When Bhob visited in march 2013 he did some sax-improvisations along the lines of these drafts. Electronically transformed excerpts from these recordings have been injected into and morphed with the drafts. The reference to New Orleans has been lost completely midway, like the plan of an equal-part collaboration. Nevertheless Bhob and me totally agree about many things. Like our disagreement concerning the importance of Dj Screw.
