Review of "Cross Creek" by Phillip Wilkerson (and how it's always better to get the whole picture before you form a conclusion)

Posted by Simon Slator on April 22, 2014 at 11:30am 0 Comments

On a weekend break with the wife, I hooked my phone up to the hotel’s free wi-fi and, a few seconds later, it reported that I’d received an e-mail. I opened my inbox to see that it was an e-mail from Bandcamp, informing me that Phillip Wilkerson had released a new album called "Cross Creek". Having been really impressed with his recent works, especially the sublime and meditative Ways of Forgetting, I made sure I kept the e-mail in my inbox to remind myself to download it when I got home.

With the album imported into my iTunes library and on my iPod (where the sound quality is significantly better than my cheapo-nasty desktop speakers), I started listening and found there wasn’t much music at all. I knew from the album description that it contained field recordings… but raw field recordings? How was I meant to listen to it? Was there any musical merit in listening to Phil having his groceries scanned at the supermarket? Was it a cleverly-disguised parody of Lennon’s Unfinished Music? Was I missing something? At the time, at least two people had actually paid to download it… why?!

Scrolling down the page, towards the bottom, my eye caught a couple of recognisable symbols. The familiar little icons that indicated he’d released them on a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike licence. Now it all made sense! It wasn’t meant to be an album in the traditional fashion, but a seed for others to make their own music from. I could see how, from a producer’s perspective, these field recordings were like raw materials designed to be processed,…

What's been playing lately?

Update: 4/22/14

Various orchestras. Sibelius: Symphonies #4 - #7. Sibelius is definitely growing on me as a strong influence. Brilliant, classic and modern. His symphonies follow the clear progression one would expect in a sequence of similar works composed years apart. No. 5 is mostly playful; No. 6 is a delight, and the one-movement No. 7 is simply sublime. Essential listening for classical fans.

Steve Roach. Structures From Silence – 30th Anniversary 3-CD set. I love it. The contrast between the lush strings and pads of the original and the crystalline sparkle of the new pieces is striking, but they go together nicely, as part of Steve’s most contemplative work. Cause for celebration, and constant repeat play.

Steve Brand & Disturbed Earth. Broken Gold. I need to sit down with headphones – or speakers on low volume - for this one. Earbuds don’t have a chance with this oceanic torrent. First of Steve and Dean’s (four-part, as it turned out) trilogy from a few years back.

Steve Brand & Disturbed Earth. Busy With Dreams. A righteous continuation! A percussion fest for two-thirds and a dreamy drift in the closing piece.

Steve Brand & Disturbed Earth. The Rest of Time. This trilogy covers a lot of ground! Organic, earthy, visceral and serene by turns, and sometimes all at once. The 45-minute closing piece, The Unstruck Sound, is a highlight of the entire series.

Disturbed Earth & Steve Brand. The First Day Unnamed. A fitting coda to the series: a summary and continuation, exploratory, earthy and abstract. None of this is for the faint of ear, so very rewarding for the rest of us…

Steve Roach. Back to Life. Steve’s blooming into symphonic form with this follow-up to Sigh of Ages. Another atmospheric touchstone.

Steve Roach &…

The Fortune Chronicles by Another Neglected Hobby

Aural Films is proud to present "Fortune Chronicles" by Another Neglected Hobby. This release is based on a real mystery. When the artist found a letter from a film studio and what looked like some pages from a novel buried far out in the desert. He was inspired to create this music and bring the manuscript back to life. Download the album now at http://auralfilms.bandcamp.com/album/the-fortune-chronicles
