VRTACEK, CHARLES: Heaven Comes To Town (vinyl)
Side one successfully essays a fascinating project - to invoke a half-distracted internal world moving within, and sometimes responsive to, a half-heard external world. Snatches of melody, echoing a kind of stream-of- consciousness, emerge from and sink into documentary sound which runs parallel with it. Not random but embodying a complex and subtle aesthetic. Side 2 consists of pieces, mostly for piano and guitar, that stretch into silence but wholly absorb. Zen, Satie, Hitchcock... THIS IS A VINYL RELEASE - LAST FEW COPIES.
