ANA 007 LP
FOREFATHERS’ EVE LP
High Definition Quartet has proved itself in cross-genre explorations. It is not without reason that its leader and pianist Piotr Orzechowski has been nicknamed Pianohooligan. With roguish impudence he jumps across genre boundaries. In FOREFATHERS’ EVE he explores the rarely visited borderland between jazz or broadly understood improvised music and electronics, which some still view as ambient, while others greet it as homemade contemporary classical music.

The otherworldly guests conjured up here, in a project based on Part Two of Adam Mickiewicz’s poetic drama Forefathers' Eve, are all outstanding personalities of the international experimental music scene: William Basinski the ambient magus, Christian Fennesz the master of prepared guitar, and Robert Rich, an expert on gloomy oneiric soundscapes. The other participants of this fascinating rite are Krzysztof Knittel on an an infrared-operated monochord, and Igor Boxx of Skalpel duo.

Previously only released on a CD, the music now comes out on a vinyl for the first time, which is good news for all music lovers, since, to paraphrase Mickiewicz, those who have never tasted analogue sound shall never reach heaven.
