June 7, 21,28,30 2006 Railyard 2 Santa Fe

Desbah Stumpf: Voice, Pharo, ‘sprong
Dawn Edelman: Quesera, Smile
Alex Ferris: Basuka, Sprawl, Bish-Bosh

After playing all the instruments for a few months, we decided by consensus to select a few and play only them as we would in a conventional band. We also decided to play short pieces (5 minutes or less) instead of continuous improvisations. The sixteen pieces here are from our regular sessions. They are in chronological order to document the evolution of our responses to this approach. Some have been edited for time (beginnings and endings, but no content has been altered.

Personally. I wasn’t enthusiastic about limiting ourselves sonically as much as we did. It seemed to undermine the primary asset of Anarchestra, its versatility and flexibility. I felt our small pallet of sounds (and their relative concentration in the treble end of the sonic spectrum) tended to restrict us to self-similarity and impeded us from exploring beyond that.

Within those confines, I think we made some interesting music, particularly when Dezbah sang –to me it is her voice that grounds this music and gives it substance.

I price all of my music at $0.00, but Bandcamp only allows a limited number of free downloads per month. If you see a price it means that the free downloads have been used up for the month. If I set a price lower than the $7.00 default, there won’t be any free downloads ever. If there are more sales there end up being more free downloads. I’m not trying to get anybody to spend money (I loathe capitalism and the comercialzation of everything, especially the arts). I make music, not product. If you end up buying something, at least you have enabled 2 other people to get something for free (which is a good thing). Or check back until it’s free again. Please feel free to duplicate and pass along.
