Alan Sondheim with Azure Carter, building on his legacy of
innovative music that resists genre, that opens awkward and
unfathomable worlds of sound, played on traditional instruments
without effects.

Public Eyesore has released Future Speed Future, with seventeen
high-speed solos and duets, with guitar, viola, saz, dutar, oud,
and voice. Speed is critical here - Sondheim plays as fast as
possible, the notes often at a furious pace. It's a study in
thinking, where conscious thought and repetition are impossible.
It's also a study in a different kind of music, approaching
Sondheim's limits of fast improvisation - scales, harmony, and
rhythms tumble and change from one moment to another. Sondheim
says "What I do here - I play as fast as possible. By every means
possible. Working in ways in which I try not to repeat things I
already know, trying to harness speed without being too much aware
of what I have done before. So that it is future speed future and
this is future speed future. And so I'm riding the contour of what
I'm hearing, and my fingers are flailing as if I were out of
control, or as if the music were in control, and I could hardly
follow the music. Azure Carter's songs are beautiful and provide a
depth and balance to the mayhem. So the result is this cd, whose
content is poetics and speed and what speed can do and what
happens when you make it or hear it.

"I shape the contour, on every instrument, fingers straining to
produce what i'm hearing internally, desperate to mind the
intervals, remembering constantly, what came before, what is
projected through the possibilities, whatever i'm playing, ranging
across different sonorities - I move among these, create
circulations among things i've heard in my mind, where everything
is perfectly in pitch, where it's almost as if i were capable of
shattered and sutured worlds. there's strings, bow, always winding
and unwinding tensions, nervous playing, even anxiety, anything i
can use in order to produce the surfaces of the imaginary i'm
shape-riding, i'm circulating, i'm inhabiting. there is always the
sound itself; am i letting everything down in this regard. i don't
know, i've moved on to the next figure, next position, remembering
the ruptured melodic arches that mark and remark me on the way to
certain dissolution."
