On & On
‘On&On’, which follows 2018’s ‘Minus’, Blumberg’s debut for Mute, is a consolidation of the deconstructed song aesthetic he has developed, operating at the intersection between conventional song structures and free improvisation. Now he takes this further, incorporating recurring, shapeshifting motifs and at times dissolving the boundaries between songs altogether.
Born out of live sessions with the same core group of players as ‘Minus’: Daniel Blumberg (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Ute Kanngiesser (cello), Billy Steiger (violin), Tom Wheatley (double bass) and Jim White (drums), with the addition of electronic maverick Elvin Brandhi (vocals). As such it represents a deepening of relationships and distillation of techniques for this tight-knit group of freeplaying musicians, who are loosely based around Café OTO.
The album is recorded by Peter Walsh (Scott Walker), who has captured the group’s extraordinary performances, encompassing the full expressive range of their instruments from softly-bowed melodies and tender vocal harmonies to rough-hewn scrapes, plucks and rattles, while the sound of the room and the outside world spill naturally into the soundfield.
