Beaming

CD (Item 183634) Confront (UK), 2020 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

Most folks know Tony Oxley as an important drummer on the UK avant scene for decades – but he's also a creative musician with many talents, which includes strong work on electronics – which he uses here alongside Stefan Holker, who handles all the acoustic percussion on the record! The set has a very electro-acoustic vibe – as you might expect from the instrumentation – and feels very different than usual drum/electronics recordings, such as the work of Paul Lytton – as Oxley often has a very textural approach, but one's that mixes with tuneful moments – echoed by Holker as the duo improvise together – never in a way that's song-based, as this is clearly freely spontaneous creation – but with a very special quality that makes the record a gem! The set features six improvisations of varying lengths, recorded in Germany in 2019.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
