Warmdesk Guero Variations
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: Deluxe
The story goes that Guero Variations arose from William Selman's captivation with a recording by composer Helmut Lachenmann, in which all the sounds were captured from a piano by means other than playing it. Think John Cage versus Matthew Herbert, with Selman knocking striking, and otherwise drumming up sound from a piano without touching the ivories. Should sound weird, right? Only if weird is synthy click-house like SND or MRI. "Guero (Recon)," "Guero (Spleen)," and pretty much everything else could have landed Warmdesk a deal with Force Tracks. Cool angular funk without a sad piano sound in sight, but this is altogether bouncier than anything else from Deluxe.
