A rather brilliant introduction to the sonic world of Fred Frith
28 May 2019 | by PKazeeSee all my reviews

Every scene serves to illustrate Frith's primary conceit... borrowed from John Cage... that music is all around us at all times if one is open to hearing it. For instance, it's in the sound of power tools, garbage trucks, and the raking of the stones in a Japanese rock garden. Frith sometimes incorporates these sounds directly into his work, but more often, he simply does his best to recreates them on his guitar, violin and other instruments.
