Blast - Sift (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU RER Blast 2
"This is the second release (editor's note: no, it isn't, it's their sixth release; it's their second on ReR after three on Cuneiform and a first that was self-released) after a long wait, from this unique ensemble. Equally at home with the discipline of composition and the tightrope of improvisation Blast have evolved a fluid, pointillistic, unfathomable but transparent musical language that seamlessly integrates - over very short durations - highly complex writing and very free ranging improvisation, allowing the two languages to merge and combine into a new kind of logical exposition that makes sense but can’t be reverse-engineered into its component parts.
This is a music that lives through detail and exposition; neither resolving into composition, nor able properly to be understood as improvisation.
In this respect Blast have solved a problem that has defeated many in the last 40 years. Founded in 1989, Blast’s line up and musical focus have evolved considerably over the years, from complex, composed art-rock to a much more open style that combines elements of improvisation and austere contemporary composition."-Chris Cutler
