Malcolm Goldstein; Full Circle SoundingKYE
KYE 34 LP
Long Playing Record
First new solo music from venerable Violinist & Composer Malcolm Goldstein in several years, touching on both his scratch-addled string-work and the sorts of Tape-Music diversions best documented via Alga Marghen's "Early Electronic / Tape-Collage Music" LP from 7-odd years back.
That Graham sees a line drawn from Malcolm's point-of-origin directly into the whole KYE universe is a great thing; apparently the Issue Project Room set largely reproduced here went down to rapturous applause, which all makes perfect sense in the grand cosmic scheme. Malcolm works only to his own logical accord, and this uniquely fractured, structured music is less of a soliloquy than a hyper-speed, mapped out, lecture-length conversation.
