Michael Dessen: Digibone Forest
CAT. #: ALP067
Digibone Forest carries the listener through an otherworldly soundscape created by Michael Dessen, a "slide-trombone virtuoso and computer musician of the highest order" (All About Jazz). Moving through a wide range of moods and spaces, the music is at once visceral, ethereal, playfully unpredictable and completely unclassifiable.



Noriko Kodama: Abyss
CAT. #: ALP069

Guitar is Dead: Guitar is Dead
CAT. #: ALP068
This album vents the musical aggression of three malcontent New Orleans musicians with blazing guitar solos, spiteful rants and ferocious riffs bridging the fed-up rage of punk and musical finesse of experimental jazz.



계수정sOo's collage: (John in the) Cage + Hazel
CAT. #: ASP004
A live performance of pieces by Soo Jung Kae and Nate Wooley recorded on October 21, 2018 at viaart gallery/Daedong Hotel on Jeju Island in South Korea.
