ADAM SHEAD & BILL HARRIS - ORTHOSTAT
Simply, this outing is a carbon copy of what was once two friends in a room hitting metal and wood rhythmically, playing. Playing unhinged; playing for an unbooked set. As the state of things around them was already beat and at rest, Bill and Adam did the thing they could do with no agenda at hand (or any other appendage) which might guide energy into motion, and not clutter sound organization with the burden of emotion as prime or prerequisite.
This is music that happened:
live, the way it couldn’t in a club.
As music, more music,
it likely means just as much
as anything else.
I’m certain I can’t be sure.
