PS079 - Ian William Craig - Zugzwang for Fostex
A step away from the more serene motions heard from Ian William Craig on Sean McCann's Recital Program label ( "A Turn of Breath" and "Cradle for the Wanting"). A step into more damaged territory, circuit bent, fractured, ragged. Still focused primarily on voice & piano, ethereal waves of sound and melody, Craig documented the perilous last turns of a tape machine that died in the process of recording due to Craig customizing it. A Zugzwang. Still intoxicating, gorgeous, instantly recognizable as work by Craig, but noticeably lacerated. Documentation of a charming and terminal malfunction.
