Michael Pisaro – Asleep, Street, Pipes, Tones
Michael Pisaro's 64-minute work Asleep, Street, Pipes, Tones for electric guitar, bass clarinet, and tape, performed by Kristine Tjøgersen and Håkon Stene.
Asleep, Street, Pipes, Tones is a fascinating, intense and lovingly produced example of what can be made if you come from a completely different direction to the music-making process. It is life-affirming and somehow subtly insinuating. It is a soundscape, if you like, that can perhaps make us all appreciate our basic existence just that little bit more keenly
