ギタリスト、インプロヴァイザー、作曲家として徐々にその作風とスタイルがディープな持続音/ミニマルへと移行して行った、フィルニブロックの演奏サポートでも知られるDavid Firstの集大成的ドローンワークスが米Important Recordsより3枚組でリリース!!自身の音楽哲学を説明するために氏を含む8人編成のアンサンブルThe Western Enisphereを結成、2時間30分を15のセクションに分け、トロンボーン・ソロ、ヴィオラ・ソロ、カルテット、アンサンブルにて、静謐な流れ、ゆったりと揺蕩うスローな編成、ダイナミックな重奏を聞かす、まさにこの人物ならではのドローンミュージックを提示。フリージャズに傾倒した頃に影響されたCecil Taylor、自身が参加するノイズ・ロックバンドNotekillers、多くの歴史的ミニマリスト、ポップなメロディまで、あらゆる要素を落とし込んだ完璧な作品。マスト。

David First likes to use the phrase “the virtuosity of slowness” to describe his musical philosophy. In The Consummation of Right and Wrong, he and his 8-piece ensemble, The Western Enisphere, practice this virtuosity to great effect in closely examining the universes that fall between the cracks of convention, reflecting a wide continuum of complex relationships, all the while giving us music that is simply ravishing to listen to.

This is "drone music” as dynamic organism, moving from compact and ruminative to spacious and serene and back.

In this 3-CD, 2.5 hours of sonic tessellation, First has alchemized his own personal opposites like never before, combining and transmuting his free-jazz experience with avant-legend Cecil Taylor, his influential noise-rock & roll band Notekillers, his long-abiding love for minimalist, mathematical excavation on dozens of instruments, and a highly refined ear for pop-melodic architectures into a singular, epic set of vibrational possibilities that leaves very few stones unturned in his ongoing quest for the resolution of all extremes.
