Rotterdam.1 by Text of Light out now
January 1, 2007

"Recorded at the Rotterdam International Film Festival in January 2005, this explosive piece from Text Of Light typifies their abilities as a vivid freeform improvisational unit. Ranaldo and Lichtís measured guitar work sets a basis on which Kreigerís blaring saxtronics, Barnesí percussive explorations and DJ Oliveís swirling turntable incursions can intertwine and augment one another. This piece ebbs and flows, each of the players listening intently and guiding the proceedings with disarmingly sublime yet focused
intensity.

Like all their recorded works to date, this piece was delivered in tandem with a live film projection Ė this interaction between 20th Century abstract and experimental film and live improvised performance at the very core of the unit".

This 3" release was recorded by the mighty Martin Van Rappard and edited by Lee Ranaldo and Alan Licht.

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
