Theme Park For Ear, Goh Lee Kwang's imprint for more spontaneous releases, improvised music and whatever else impromptu from the world of electronic music. The first is by a quartet of busy bees: Ilia Belorukov (alto-saxophone, objects, ipod & mini-amp), Pedro Chambel (sinewaves & noises), Bruno Duplant (organ & concept), Kurt Liedwart (analog synthesizer & electronics). "Truly free adaption of an Edgar Allan Poe novel, 'the fall of the house of Usher', the piece was lately recomposed", it says on the cover. I have read the story (albeit ages ago), but had I not read this on the cover, I think I would not have gotten this out of the music. It seems that these four players set out to play concentrated bits of a longer piece, with tiny gaps in between. All of this is course highly carefully done, with slow developments, small changes, deep sine waves and minimalist moves. It's a great music for sure, but I didn't get the supposed narrative aspect of it. Also I thought it was a bit too long at forty-nine minutes for the amount of variation it had to offer.
