[AR07]: Filter

filter-cover-web[AR07]: Filter – Massimo Magee Solo and with Barry Chabala

FILTER – Massimo Magee Solo – and with Barry Chabala

1: Filtered 26:16 – Massimo Magee Solo
2: Acoustic if it wasn’t for the damn laptop 5:41 – Barry Chabala and Massimo Magee
—————————————————–
Barry Chabala on (2): Laptop
Massimo Magee on (1): Tape player with recording of sopranino saxophone improvisation recorded immediately prior to the recording of ‘Filtered’, Amplifier with headphones and preparations, radio, signal generator, loops, Cabasa, Woodpecker, Toy Drum, Electric Toothbrush, Harmonica, Electric Fan
Massimo Magee on (2): Trumpet, Tenor Saxophone, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Sopranino Saxophone, percussion, cymbal, toy drum, amplified ukulele, keyboard (all overdubbed)

These pieces are both related to the concept of Filtering.  In the first, a sopranino saxophone improvisation was taped and then immediately afterwards ‘filtered’ through a second, separate, improvisation process using very different instruments along with the tape.
The second is the result of Barry Chabala radically reworking (with his laptop) a recording called ‘Almost Acoustic’ which I sent to him over the internet.  This original recording was composed of nine overdubbed layers of Trumpet, Tenor Saxophone, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Sopranino Saxophone, Percussion and Cymbal, Percussion and Cymbal and Toy Drum, Amplified Ukulele, and Keyboard respectively, but has been transformed into something entirely different by Barry’s laptop.
