Recorded at the Rotterdam International Film Festival in January 2005, this explosive piece from Text Of Light typifies their abilities as a vivid freeform improvisational unit. Ranaldo and Lichtís measured guitar work sets a basis on which Kreigerís blaring saxtronics, Barnesí percussive explorations and DJ Oliveís swirling turntable incursions can intertwine and augment one another. This piece ebbs and flows, each of the players listening intently and guiding the proceedings with disarmingly sublime yet focused
intensity.

Like all their recorded works to date, this piece was delivered in tandem with a live film projection Ė this interaction between 20th Century abstract and experimental film and live improvised performance at the very core of the unit.

Text Of Light on Rotterdam 1 are:
Alan Licht: guitar
Lee Ranaldo: guitar, electronics
Ulrich Krieger: sax, sax-tronics
DJ Olive: turntables, powerbook
Tim Barnes: drums, percussion

Two days into the New Year and already there's new SY stuff for me to spend my hard-earned cash on. It's a good job I didn't make a resolution to cut back on my music buying.

well all the kids in the hospital want a copy so hope you got the dough.

i have not actually heard much by tol but what i did sounded amazing so i really wanna get into more. actually having a decent mp3 player now means i can fit stuff like that on there.

If my having a copy means that one of the children in the hospital would have to miss out, then I think it's only right to do the decent thing, and ask that the child who misses out is one who is in a private ward.

i'm guessing this is an excerpt of the performance and not the whole thing, right? it being called "rotterdam 1" and also a 3-inch cd... don't think they hold more than 25 minutes or so at maximum.

It is only an excerpt, yes.

From the ROOM 40 website: "We're also very proud to be issuing a wonderful edit from Text Of Light live at the Rotterdam International Film Festival. It's a firey piece of work that typifies this ensembles abilities"

But it will be very sexily packaged. ROOM 40's stuff always is.

Thats the beauty of room 40 - doesn't matter what time you email Lawrence will shoot you one back in an hour tops....usually less.

The CD looks amazing - a 3" encased in a standard format cd size.....hard to explain but therefore the remainder of the disc (from 3" to the edge) is clear see thru plastic.

Gotta love room 40
