Dreyblatt, Arnold / The Orchestra of Excited Strings - Resolve vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 39-LP-DC-877
I saw Arnold Dreyblatt & ensemble in 1983 (40 years ago!) at New Music America and he totally blew me away. He would have a small ensemble work with mostly re-tuned /microtonal instruments which he would have them bow and strike according to his score, until the room fills with waves and waves of sound.
It was and still is a singular sound. No one comes close to sounding anything like this.
Now it’s 40 years later and he has a new ensemble, including Oren Ambarchi & this sounds very much like what I was blown away by all those years ago, which is not surprising, since they reference his 1982 release!
Personally recommended.

“Resolve acts in dialogue with the minimalist inspirations of the first Arnold Dreyblatt & The Orchestra of Excited Strings release, 1982’s Nodal Excitation – in effect, looking beneath the hood of several decades of progression to review and renew the revolutionary intent of their microntonal foundation credo. This new Orchestra – Oren Ambarchi, Konrad Sprenger and Joachim Schütz – combine effortlessly to explore new scalar dimensions.
