EXCLUSIVE! FIRST-EVER DOWNLOAD RELEASE! (FMP 0210) http://www.fmp-label.de/freemusicproduction/labelscatalog/fmp0210.html http://www.fmp-label.de/fmplabel/catalog2/fmpcd140.html . A classic mid-1970s outing from the Schlippenbach Quartett. Partially released on CD (tracks 2 & 3 only) as part of the massive FMP retrospective box, this is the only in-print edition of this crucial LP.
"On all 3 'live' pieces, one experiences the unrelenting intensity (even during quiet sections) that this quartet exudes. Schlippenbach is in sublime form, his two-fisted attacks pushing the pianos to their limits. Parker rips, tears and growls. His feature piece, 'Black Holes,' being an early example of his circular breathing techniques on soprano sax, which he uses to create piercing split tone walls. And Kowald and Lovens thrust and push, laying down textures as well rhythms." - Milo Fine, Sweet Potato

Pillars is a stunning achievement for Sorey and perhaps a new high water mark in the post everything world. Xenakis Feldman and Cage are evoked as well as the work of Butch Morris. The three hour runtime is justified and I challenge you to find a dull moment. tlomiento
