Jason Kahn / Frantz Loriot / Christian Wolfahrth - Köln [Editions 013 Promo]

Put out on the circuit via Jason Kahn's self-run Editions label on March 24th, 2k23 is "Köln", a 34 minutes spanning one track album which sees the Zurich-based artist performing in collaboration with Frantz Loriot and Christian Wolfahrt on viola and percussion respectively. Released as a limited edition of 200 copies with hand-painted covers the extended piece, recorded live in Cologne in October, 2k22, sees the triumvirate of artists embark on a journey into the realms of freeform Improvisation including non-linear percussion, irregular and unusual treatment of the viola strings from unhinged plucking to brutal, creaky bowing accompanied by probably modular retrofuturist background space bleeps, brittle high frequency emissions, minimalist atmospheres as well as upswelling Noize, indistinct scrapings, swirlings and occasional rhythmic patterns, all falling in place in a somewhat field recorded-fashion which leaves the listener as a close by, near field observer of both chance and communication prevalent within the intimate interaction of the three participants. One for a limited avantgarde aware audience, this.
