カナダのアヴァンレーベルBeniffer Editionsの面白い復刻作品!!同国カナダの大学 - ハンバーカレッジにて1976〜1980年まで存在したというアマチュアの実験音楽/即興集団によるドキュメント録音をLP化のが本作。非常に強靭な音がドカドカ浮遊するシリアスなアヴァン即興ファンに大推薦の一枚です。

" Fascinating unearthing by Beniffer of a document of this short-lived experiment in free improvisation that came into being as an off-shoot of the Humber College Ensemble For Experimental Music in 1976: Convergence existed between 1976 and 1980, progressing from performing written pieces to total free improvisation. The instrumental line-up is singular: percussion (including steel drums, a first in improvised music?), piano, trombone and trumpet and the group walk the line between free jazz, avant classical performance and weirdo communal freak with considerable aplomb. There are long periods of silence subtly bisected by cranky tones and elongated brass statements leading into heady percussive voids that touch on the NNCK/Embryo collaboration Embryonnck while giving the nod to some of the St Louis Black Artist Group experiments . Although they came out of an academic establishment there’s less of a pointillist Spontaneous Music Ensemble feel to the music and a little more garage band grit,. The steel drums really work to wonk the music, locating it in some kind of fourth world conservatory where it’s possible to get down as much as it is to take off. An excellent exhumation and another thrilling chapter in the secret history of 20th century free music. Recorded live at the Music Gallery September 18, 1979, screenprinted sleeves. Recommended.
