Well Tempered Ignorance

Vikah Abstract music has this way of communicating in a seemingly concrete way. Driving back from LA at midnight along a stretch of Californian desert, odd lights, a full moon and this album playing. I was taken to a place far far away. Favorite track: Stereo Meditation For Bedroom Fuzz / Squigglizer Overture / Gillette A La Mode / UFO Renaissance.

Well Tempered Ignorance is the debut solo work from Jonathan James Carr, member of Seattle's Brain Fruit. This recording finds the classically trained pianist marrying free-jazz inspired synthesizer arrangements with musique concrète elements recorded abroad in India and Berlin. These two 20+ minute pieces that make up Well Tempered Ignorance run the gamut from elastic modular psychedelia to calm, transparent symmetry that create in its entirety an amalgam of top-tier drone and exultant audio sculpture. Featuring Kaori Suzuki of Magic Echo Music on an early production model of one of her hand-built synthesizers.
