"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Kenneth Kirschner has floated in LMYE's peripheral vision for so long - featuring alongside Taylor Deupree in this little post, as a remixer/responder in this one on TU M', & in his own right in a long-unfinished ambient/drone/post-classical grab-bag - that it grates to finally feature his work in a cursory way. But time is tight, for a change, & the just under six minutes of his celestial, faintly tidal April 17, 2006 are so mesmerising, so adroit that they call for posting straight away...

The piece is just one of a striking array of around 120 (all named by date) that feature on his home page. So there's no lack of scope for a deeper look in the future. & that's without even taking his many excellent official releases into account.

Can't claim to have dug too deeply into the home page trove yet. But March 12, 1997 & July 7, 1998 are both worth your time - two long exercises in a dry, clattering percussive style that is quite gripping (especially the older of the pair) despite its funklessness.

An engaging 'rework' of April 17, 2006 (by LAJ, "layered (along with some simple effects) with some source material taken from K.M. Kreb's "The Jade Furnace" release on Treetrunk Records [CC license = Attribution]") is here, by the way...

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
