Cover of Bill Laswell

From Bill Laswell’s M.O.D. Technologies label:

MILFORD GRAVES & BILL LASWELL
The Stone – April 22, 2014
Back In No Time
Milford Graves – Iconic Force of Nature, Teacher, Healer, Shaman, Spiritual Rhythmatist… His drums speak in heavy African and Afro-Cuban dialects. Echoes of timeless voices… From his beginnings with Albert Ayler, Sonny Shorrock and others… To the present space / time… Milford Graves has been a profound conductor of healing energy. A true spirit, a legendary African-American voice… Here in uninterrupted dialog with bassist Bill Laswell.

WADADA LEO SMITH & BILL LASWELL
The Stone – April 22, 2014
Akashic Meditation
Wadada Leo Smith – One of the most original and important trumpet players of his generation. His masterful tone opens portals that explore new sonic environments and lost worlds. Ambient space music above with the deep delta blues below. He was born in Leland, Mississippi. And early corroborrator with the AACM in Chicago, has also worked with Anthony Braxton, Marion Brown, Jack DeJohnette, John Zorn and many others. With many documented recordings under his name. A true original. Caught here in duet with Bill Laswell.

PRAXIS
The RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ
Buckethead
John Zorn
Bill Laswell
In Times Of Horror
THE RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ – Gothic Futurism, Ikonoklast Panzerism… “In Times of Horror” – a coded message from the gates of hell.The specter of the 90s Earache imprint, collides with intense sound construction detonated with multi layers of fierce industrial textures…contrasting semi controlled chaos. Featuring mutant Guitar virtuoso at his freest, avant-garde Icon – saxophonist/composer John Zorn and Bill Laswell. Trash, hardcore, garbage god metal, chainsaw demolition, IT GROWS.

DJ KRUSH & BILL LASWELL
Shuen
Turntablist and producer, DJ Krush, is one of the first Japanese artists to be embraced by the global hip-hop world. Beginning by mixing elements of R & B and Acid Jazz with the big breakbeat backbone of mid- tempo hip-hop. Gradually moving more toward the abstract applying heavy effects and sample manipulation to thick, smart breaks, layered, ambient textures and subtle, inventive scratching. Heard here in duet with ikonoklast bassist/producer Bill Laswell. Shuen shows both musicians seamlessly navigate through the ambient / world beat matrix…a brief journey into sound and rhythm.

METHOD OF DEFIANCE
Phantom Soundclash
Nebuchadnezzar
with
Dr. Israel, Garrison Hawk, Bernie Worrell, Adam Rudolph, Graham Haynes,
Peter Apfelbaum, Guy Licata, Bill Laswell, Foday Musa Suso
A spontaneous-recombinant, concrete music / sound collage. Electric Miles Davis, avant-funk, dub, reggae, noise, free-jazz and flashes of Africa – endure constnat rhythmic sound blasts, sonic detonations and high energy malfunctions. All past wreckage as raw material to be applied to the construction of completely new forms. Dr. Israel, Garrison Hawk, P-Funk icon – Bernie Worrell, Gambian Griot and kora master – Foday Musa Suso, Adam Rudolph, Graham Haynes, Peter Apfelbaum, Guy Licata and Bill Laswell… To be continued.

BERNIE WORRELL
Phantom Soundclash
Purple World
with
Bill Laswell, Adam Rudolph, Dr. Israel, Grandmaster DXT
P-Funk legend Bernie Worrell, without a doubt, the most influential and definitely the most emulated and copied electronic keyboardist in modern music. His work totally defined the synthesizer of 80s and 90s hip-hop and can still be clearly recognized in the pop hits of today. Caught here in a classic sound / mush up…that moves from delicate to simply raw, intense and bombastic free-form funkafied filth reloaded. In collaboration with multi-directional percussion virtuoso Adam Rudolph, Brooklyn’s finest DJ / beat generator – Dr. Israel, Bill Laswell and the original Bronx DJ – Grandmixer DXT (Zulu Nation, Wild Style) best known for introducing scratching to the mainstream on Herbie Hancock’s mega hit “Rockit”… Thus spawning a generation of innovative turntablists…The history continues.

AMN Reviews: Secluded Bronte – Secluded in Jersey City [pogus 21075-2]


Although this EP-length CD from Secluded Bronte was recorded live in the studio at WFMU in Jersey City, NJ way back in 2002, it still sounds fresh.

The creative process of Secluded Bronte—made up of brothers Jonathan and Adam Bohman and Richard Thomas—seems to be to take a kitchen sink miscellany of toys, objects, appliances and technologies, play them live, and then chop and channel the sounds into a collage. There is a kind of inspired zaniness to the results, but with a shadow behind it, almost as if we’re listening to toy pianos, metal utensils and other household objects being upended by a poltergeist with a dry sense of humor. And it’s this droll undertow that sets Secluded Bronte apart from much acousmatic sound art and lends a welcome splash of irreverence to the art of sonic mayhem.
