MINATURES-V/A, PIPE RECORDS, LP, 1980, U.S.A
1980. Pipe records
A sequence of 51 tiny masterpieces edited by . Amazing collection of mostly British composers and sound explorers. Everything from abstract poetry, jazz, experimental, avant-rock and more. It's impressive to see the amount of creativity these artists back into a 1-minute (or less) piece. You can hear them having fun with the work and doing things they are not normally used to doing, full spectrum of composition, sound and explorations. Each track is wonderfully commented on by label owner and project producer Morgan Fisher. Stand out tracks for us were , The Work, (who squeezes pieces from every Henry Cow song into a power mash up piece!) Metabolist, The Residents & Mary Langford.
