Guillermo E. Brown Black Dreams 1.0
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Melanine Harmonique
Inventive drummer Brown‘s worked with Blue Series jazz stalwarts David S. Ware Quartet and Matthew Shipp, and issued that series‘ strangest disc, Soul At The Hands Of The Machine. As odd as that album is, however, it sounds like straight-ahead jazz compared to Black Dreams 1.0. Recorded by Brown on Max/MSP with assistance from Matt Ostrowski, Black Dreams is polyglot experimentation run riot, an unfathomable morass of impossible textures and baffling rhythms. And it rules. Brown combines Herbie Hancock‘s Sextant-era electronic exploration with Eardrum‘s fourth-world textural wizardry. The result is a disorienting soundtrack for an unimaginable film. This stuff is very potent.
