LACHEN J: Music for the Dying Forest
Originally released in 1987, this is a wide ranging record - additive rhythms, interesting, broad instrumentation (all manner of keyboards, bass, guitar, violins, xylophone, brass, reeds, recorder, synthesizer and a few exotics - variously distributed) all set in a well-composed, very loosely rock based context - with some tape manipulation, studio experimentation and open form passages; a summary of the state of the art. Assembled over time in Lars' own studio, this marks well a craft aesthetic that has all but disappeared now. His track from the Recommended Quarterly 0203 is included as an extra track.
