Total Running time: 28mins 27secs [205mb]
Tracks were split fairly arbitrarily, I think there’s seques into other tracks aorund where the splts are but who really knows. Great sounding show from Mr. Pete Swanson (ex-Yellow Swans). Swanson played on a table off the stage and i was standing directly beside him but the sound was still coming from the stage so the mics were pointed in that direction. This recording is also available in 96/24 but since its just recorded with the R09’s internal mics I’ll probably just distribute the 16/44 edition.

Free Noise is an eagerly awaited first-time collaboration featuring major names from the burgeoning noise and free jazz scenes on both sides of the Atlantic. As free jazz was originally seen as an abuse of established musical forms, so is noise today. This Contemporary Music Network tour brings together the revolutionary genius at the heart of both for a visceral, revelatory and often explosive experience. Over two sets, and through a series of improvised combinations, the paths of these two unorthodox musics will converge to create something both beautiful and terrifying. Expect riotous freeform squalls, minimalist meditations and breathtaking cliffs of extreme volume.

The Free Noise tour was a tour of musicians around the UK in 2007 where Evan Parker, Paul Hession, Yellow Swans, John Weise, C. Spencer Yeh, Metalux, John Edwards & Culver all collaborated together in long form improvisations together than played to the strengths of each performer. The results will probably seem a bit more restrained than expected given the line up but is still incredible they managed to pull it off without sounding like a mess.

Only image I can find for this gig is this poster art designed by flickr user roney_is_phony who seems to do a lot of pretty sweet looking art. This recorded was done by the owner of Three Lobed Records who has recently been uploading quite a lot of excellent live recordings to DaD recently, pretty sure I have the Mouthus recording from this show too if anyone wants it at a later date.
As for the show itself it’s a pretty quiet & restrained YS set though it could be that the quiteness is actually due to a low recording level (particulaly obvious near the end of the set) but it’s a good slow burner. Reminds me of their Descension release.
