John Levin - Five Years Out
Arp Odyssey analog synthesizer and digital delay
Released April, 2010
Edition of 100 color-faced CDs in hand-stamped, recycled cover
Brattleboro's John Levin (Ill Wind Ensemble, Greenhill Builders) performs drone music in one of its purest -- and most minimal -- forms. Each track was recorded in one take using nothing more than a 30-plus year old Arp Odyssey and a delay pedal. Four cuts range in length from just over two minutes to just over half an hour.
