Six Lines Of Transformation/Music For Eight Bamboo Flutes

CD (Item 481939) Porter, 2008 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Atmospheric reed work from composer Andrew Raffo Dewar – music that seems to start in the territory of some of Yusef Lateef's more exotic sides, then take off into much more abstract directions! The CD features two extended pieces – the first of which is "Six Lines Of Transformation", played by a sextet that includes bass clarinet, quarter-tone flute, bassoon, trumpet, bass, and percussion – all handled with a mix of earthy tones and more avant expressions. "Music For Eight Bamboo Flutes" follows – played by the octet imagined by the title – in a very weird way that has the flutes hovering together in unique sonic space – more just abstract tones instead of notes, with a chillingly cold sort of feel!  © 1996-2018, 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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
