    MoonJune
    (USA) / February 28, 2017

    New release:

  • Wingfield-Reuter-Stavi-Sirkis – “The Stone House”

    MoonJune Records presents: “The Stone House”, the new album by Wingfield-Reuter-Stavi-Sirkis. MoonJune’s Leonardo Pavcovic says: “Occasionally, records are released which are an instant game changer: albums so profoundly innovative and compelling in their conception, construction and delivery that they are immediately essential. “The Stone House” is just such a release. And it was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs and completely improvised, with no music written down or rehearsed. The album features two of today's most original and decidedly "risk taking" electric guitar proponents, easily among the instrument's most vital new voices: the UK's Mark Wingfield (Jane Chapman; solo) and Germany's Markus Reuter (Stick Men; The Crimson ProjeKct). Each, in their own unique way, has been stretching the bounds of the tonal and textural limitations of the instrument, and, in the process, has respectively developed their own individual techniques, stylistic approaches and idiosyncratic vocabularies. Accompanied by the sure-footed foundational tandem of the Israeli-born UK transplants, bassist Yaron Stavi (David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Robert Wyatt) and drummer Asaf Sirkis (Tim Garland, Mark Wingfield, Nicolas Meier). The album incorporates many of the elements which have drawn listeners to progressive music for decades. Not only is the album often a canvas hosting a grand experiment in spontaneous group interaction, but it is also an exploration into the tonal and textural possibilities of all the instruments involved. The resulting picture which takes shape is one where the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts, and emotion, above all, emerges victorious.”
