Abrams, Joshua - Represencing (expanded / mini-lp sleeve)
"Eremite presents the first digital edition of Joshua Abrams' invaluable & out-of-print LP Represencing (2012). Represencing is the second installment of the Joshua Abrams sound world first introduced on Natural Information. Abrams again organizes small group statements around the resonant grooves of the North African ceremonial instrument the guimbri with a unique & broadly assimilative compositional voice. Sources from traditional musics to minimalism, jazz to Krautrock, animate Represencing, but Abrams is always grounded in the solidity of true working musicianship & he proves himself an artist fluent not just in styles but traditions. Listed by Village Voice, Pitchfork, Matablog, Foxy Digitalis among others as one of the best records of 2012. CD edition packaged in a matte Stoughton miniaturized 'laserdisc' sleeve with 25 minutes of previously unreleased additional material."
