Synopsis

Amazon.com
Brilliant noise and unheard-of sounds were the forte of the groundbreaking new music ensemble Cassiber. With Christoph Anders on voice, guitar, and samplers, Chris Cutler on drums and electronic devices, and Heiner Goebbels on piano, they exemplified a new electronic free music. This collection is two CDs--one of which is Cassiber's final concert, recorded in 1992 in Tokyo with special guest Shinoda Masami on saxophone. That all the electronic cut-and-paste could be done live is in itself a revelation. They played with an abandon that seems fueled by knowing the end was near. The second disc is that same concert cut, sampled and remixed, tossed into a production-sized blender by studio artists Otomo Yoshide and Ground Zero, whose penchants for art-noise are unparalleled. It is tense--almost terse in comparison to the live show, and ambient is too simple a description for music that has this many divergent moods. The Tokyo concert was the last call for Cassiber; Ground Zero's 1997 remix was the last studio project for Ground Zero. --Louis Gibson
