Sonic Fiction

CD (Item 595102) Hat Art (Switzerland), 1989 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...


The title's "sonic fiction", not "science fiction" – but the sound here draws a great deal from that confusion of terms – as the blend of elements in the set often has a stark, almost academic nature – a sound that's as cerebral as it is experimental – and quite different from a more organic set of free improvisations! The trio here features Georg Graewe on piano, Ernst Reijseger on cello, and Gerry Hemmingway on drums – and the work was all recorded live at a museum in Germany at the end of the 80s – a setting that may have had something of an influence on the sound. Titles include "Alien Corn" in three parts – plus "Aspects Of Somnambulism/Demure Scuttle", "Fangled Talk", "Masting", and "Fibulation".  © 1996-2020, 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.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.
