Description

This is the first project from Brooklyn DJ/producer Pocketknife (Tambourine Dream, Flagrant Fowl) working under his new moniker Boonlorm. An eleven track album featuring “piano not piano” house music created solely with a prepared piano and raw drum programming that pays homage to Chicago, Detroit, and the 20th century avant-garde.

String Figures is “screw music” in the most literal sense with direct ties to the late composer John Cage who created the first prepared piano pieces by inserting objects into the strings of a grand piano. The sound that resonates is a rich combination of tonal, atonal and percussive timbres. String Figures buzzes, vibrates, and jacks all at once.

This CD edition contains six remastered tracks that appeared on a limited vinyl that came out in 2012, with 4 additional tracks from the same sessions, as well as a bonus track called “Hairdo Gone” which is an homage to Lil Louis’ “Video Clash.”

This is Wilde Calm’s first release since the Arthur Russell “Some Say” 7″ issue, which sold out immediately.

Pocketknife’s debut release, “The Timpani Waves EP” (2002) features a little-known Theo Parrish remix.
