ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
for two months in early 2005, red coffee/black wine was recorded and performed by glenn weyant in a series of sonically appealing covert locations throughout the sonoran desert.

this recording began as a free dada exploration of sound and noise/disintegration via rebirth.

the process was a consistent application of omnivibrational multitonal subharmonics in construction of sonic sculpture.

when all is sound/sound is all.
out of formlessness new forms are born.

the sounds created in real-time shaped the performance as weyant responded to unanticipated sensory stimuli via a random multi-tracking technique.

subatomic intuitive-now interpretations were implemented throughout.

instruments included: prepared piano, splay-tuned guitar, kestrel 920 (a percussion instrument of weyant's design), tenor/alto sax, found objects, pipes, springs, wires, wood, air, birds, trains, electronics and processing.

due to the vagaries of natural law, unexpected phenomenon, and the obscurity of the performance locations, sonic gremlins were inevitable and welcomed.

occasional blasts of wayward electricity and rivers of wanton amp hiss plunges the listener into the doppler abyss pulling back the tapestry of illusion.

one becomes all.

the cars passing outside your window, the rattling refrigerator in your kitchen, the barking dogs, the distant sirens, the rumbling planes, the laughing children, the muffled television: it is all part of the red coffee/black wine listening experience.

when heard this way, the performance is without end or beginning.

nor can this disc ever be heard the same way twice.

in addition, each disc features original imagery created for the project and a 23 minute super hidden happy track.

all you need is all you need.
listen deep and please come again.

Well Worth The Price Of Admission....
For about a year I've been reading the posts of the artist known as Eyeball at Freejazz.org. When I heard about this disc I was stoked. Red Coffee/Black Wine is the disc for all who seek new dimensions in sound. There is no category I know of for this music. Jazz? Yes. Noise? Sure. Psychedelic? Without a doubt. EAI? Yip. But the sum of this music is much more than the individual parts. Each genre has long been contained in high walled cells. Mingling has been minimal. This recording breeches those walls and blends them into something new, original, personal. Instrumentation ranges from prepared traditional instruments to the non-traditional such as amplified springs, sheets of metal and dust pans. The more I listened to this music the deeper it seemed to get. Like peeling away the fragrant petals of some exotic flower. Each track is pure expression, adrenaline and such a personal musical approach that the listener can not help but walk away feeling connected the world of sound around them. I HIGHLY recommend this disc for those who wish to listen deeply. It will change the way you hear.

totally original- buy this now
This is a wholly original cd that all but erases the boundaries between free jazz and electro-acoustic improvisation. Upon initial listening, the most surprising thing to me was the prominence of the sax. Mr. Weyant is a highly adept player whose free blowing is featured on several tracks...only instead of interacting with a rhythm section, he's playing with layers and layers of things like broken springs, found sounds and various percussion....all played by him. There is so much going on in each piece that this music is much more percussive than most EAI music- even when there's NO percussion being played! The elaborate layering of the different sounds gives the music a constant sense of motion. This cd is the very definition of a "headphone album", and since there is such intricate activity in each piece, repeat listening is mandatory.... yeah, I know what you're thinking...I like quite a bit of EAI, noise, etc., but when I read a review and see the phrases "headphone album", "repeated listening", or "found sounds", the "self-indulgent pile of crap" alarm starts going off.... this is far from the case with Red Coffee/Black Wine. Mr. Weyant has made a stunningly original cd which proves that you can be ambient without being boring, you can play EAI that is soulful, and you can play free jazz without a band. Highly recommended for jazzers and EAI'ers who are afraid of each other. Get over it, and we could have even more music this good.
