Brian Harnetty – Marshall (From the Sun Ra Archives)
performing music from his 2013 release, The Star-Faced One.
Taken from the album “The Star-Faced One,” via Atavistic records (2013). Samples from the Sun Ra/El Saturn collection at the Creative Audio Archive at Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago. Additional musicians include Fred Lonberg-Holm (Cello), Jeff Kimmel (Bass Clarinet), and Aaron Butler (Vibes).
Taken from 7” single, entitled “The Sociophonic Key” (2012)
“Despite the variety of samples used many subtle relationships are heard––both literal and fantastic––from Sun Ra rehearsing a group of children fading into an answering machine, to the intensity of a gospel preacher alongside the Arkestra’s invitation to join them in outer space.”
