it would fit nicely in a liver of mine

lorsen [be] - 11 years ago

sure Cardew is a contemporary composeur and musician... so.....

heatfuse [be] - 11 years ago

sounds like there were 2 maybe 3 (one short at the end) distinct parts in here. it would be interesting to compare this with someone else's interpretation of that same work of Cardew. though, there seems to be a dimension missing...panning? was this recorded mono or sthg?

Definately Contemporary.

It's great, was looking at the pictures while listening to it and I thought I recognise passages and could match them with one of the pictures.

Nice job guys you got my vote:

Would indeed love it to hear another interpretation
