Title: Parker Notch
Vinyl: Sold Out
Description: The instrumental part can be played by any (fast) instrument from f# (f# below middle c) to c3 (high soprano c). The instrumental part is a sort of automatic transcription from a record of Charlie Parker playing ‘Lester Leaps In’. The original record constitutes itself as one layer of the piece, but is treated by a ‘notch filter’ that erases the area from 200-1100Hz, the fundamental pitches of Parker's playing. The notch makes room for the instrumentalist's work, which in fact is highly virtuosic. The tempo is M.M.347 but even so, almost nothing of that can really beheard, not the solo, nor the accompanying tune. Both are almost completely wrapped into a dominating static noise containing the totality of sounds from the original record, merged into a single monochrome noise colour.
