Yoshi Wada The Appointed Cloud

The Appointed Cloud


'The overall effect is of a collaboration in heaven between Oliver Messiaen and Albert Ayler, channelled by Lamonte Young' (The Wire).

An absolutely captivating hour of intensely layered and shifting periodically quietened drones and loops, blurting, blaring and banging.
The original 1987 performance stunningly captured here suspensefully evoked a succession of immense spaces which are dread and apocalyptic but continuously smeared with human interjections. (And the glowering moodiness which holds sway is lifted at the end by a long series of fanfares, then a racket of thronged pipes.)
Proceedings are dominated by a self-made 80-pipe organ and bagpipes, with sirens, a gong and various percussion, and a massive suspended metal sheet stoking the drama.

We also have copies of the limited edition of one hundred: the standard CD version plus a numbered, full-scale reproduction (29 x 85 cm) of the original score, drawn by the composer, all sealed in a paper bag.
