Cor Fuhler and Mats Gustafsson - Split LP #3
The third installment in the Narrominded Split LP Series consists of new works by two important musicians from the world of European free improvisation. Pianist Cor Fuhler and saxophone player Mats Gustafsson have been exploring new possibilities for their instruments for the past twenty years. Not only by putting these instruments in radically different contexts, but more importantly by developing new ways of playing. Fuhler mainly works inside the grand piano, stimulating the strings with all sorts of magnets, ebows and customised handtools. Gustafsson has broadened the textural possibilities of his instrument with an extended array of tongue techniques. While the explorations of these two musicians take them to very different musical and emotional terrain, the unrelenting sense of experiment is what connects them on this LP.
