AKI TAKASE (piano), ALEKS KOLKOWSKI (violin), MAURICE HORSTHUIS (viola), TRISTAN HONSINGER (cello), NOBUYOSHI INO (bass).

ADAM LINSON

CUT AND CONTINUUM

psi 06.04

As musicians embrace the possibilities of real-time playing with computer generated and controlled responses and interactions, the notion of the limits and possibilities of traditional instruments will inevitably expand in new directions. As both bass player and software wizard, Adam Linson sets a bench mark for this musical future. He made his debut recording with the ElectroAcoustic Ensemble's latest CD for ECM, The Eleventh Hour. Here is his first solo recording featuring his real time processing and sampling in a new approach to solo bass. Recorded in 2006.

Reissue of LP 1 plus over 9 minutes of extra material from the same 1970 session
