VARIOUS ARTISTS (JAPAN)

 

More experimental stuff. A compilation from Japan in 1981 featuring a lot of lo-fi, field recordings mixed with various noise and instruments. I haven’t figured out who’s who just yet as there’s no track times to match the info below. Although my guess is it’d be difficult to find any one artist, but who knows. It’s been a terrific backing soundtrack while I work on things. Here’s all the info if you don’t want to head to YouTube:

Willem de Kooning

"Park Rosenberg" 1957

I’m starting to get more interested in Willem de Kooning. Some of his work, like this one, strike an immediate chord inside of me. Others I find little to like, usually because of his color use. Still, I plan to study more about him to figure out why I have such polarized reactions to his his style.
