Go to the Andrew Pekler website  Andrew Pekler - Strings + Feedback [Staubgold - 2005]

When presented with the equation strings + feedback + staubgold, one might think of some of Ekkehard Ehlers’ works. Not this time though: Strings + Feedback is the work of Andrew Pekler.

It’s his third album, and it’s quite a different work, a departure from his previous jazz-tinged CD’s. The ten pieces are mainly based on samples taken off Morton Feldman’s 1950’s works. Pekler combined samples, layered them one above the other, played with them, building entirely new music without really straying too far off Feldman’s territories.

Not unlike Ehlers –although considerably less dark- Pekler manages to create chamber music –or something approaching- of haunting quality. At the same time cold and warm, the sounds are like an invitation to a mysterious travel. The tracks are short and very varied, which should appeal to people not usually into this sort of “arcane” music.

Strings + Feedback is an impressive work. It comes as a nice surprise on Pekler’s part, and I’m eagerly waiting for further confirmation of his undeniable talent.
