Jon Hassell - Listening To Pictures download album

First new album in nine years by a musical visionary and hugely influential figure in new music. Forty years since its creation, Jon Hassell's Fourth World aesthetic remains a powerful influence on modern electronic music. Continuing his lifelong exploration of the possibilities of recombination and musical gene-splicing, fragments of performance are sampled, looped, overdubbed and re-arranged into beguiling unexpected shapes. Hassell applies the painterly technique of ‘pentimento’ to the arrangements, teasing out texture by the overlaying of sound upon sound, or a carefully timed reveal. Jewel case in printed outer slipcase + 10 page booklet Includes unlimited streaming of Listening To Pictures (Pentimento Volume One) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. ships out within 3 days.

Complete your Jon Hassell collection. As the album is only 35 minutes or so, you might as well play it twice in a row, and drown yourself in the mesmerizing details of these uniquely individual sound sculptures.

His new album, Listening to Pictures (out on 9 June), is his first in nine years. Instead of using a live band, like his last album for the ECM label, this is a much more studio-bound project, using mutilated samples and distorted layers of voicings, reminiscent of his 1980 Possible Musics LP, with Eno. Hassell’s trumpet still plays a key role, even if it is often buried deep in the mix. On Manga Scene, he sounds like Miles Davis playing over a clanking, sonically mutilated smooth jazz session.

Picnic by Jon Hassell Jon Hassell "Listening To Pictures" AREC. English (UK) · Русский · Українська · Suomi · Español. The most striking thing about Jon Hassell’s first new album in nine years, is how effortlessly contemporary it sounds. That unhurried, muted trumpet is still pre-eminent, reasserting Hassell as electric Miles Davis’s most imaginative heir. Much here could be mistaken for new work by a producer like Flying Lotus or Oneohtrix Point Never, no mean feat for an 81 year old. - MOJO. Jon Hassell - Listening To Pictures. Shop Now.

Listening to Pictures is his first for nine years, and the debut for a new label, Ndeya, dedicated to archival releases and re-presses of his own music. In a written statement accompanying the album, he distances himself from the question of what comes next in favour of "what's happening now - letting your inner ears scan up and down the sonic spectrum. While I can’t help missing the volatile momentum of previous records, Listening to Pictures still animates its sonic space with the kind of detail few musicians have the vision or audacity to achieve.
