Robert Millis: May 17, 2017 Park Church Co-op

It’s no secret that Sublime Frequencies publishes some of the most interesting, far-flung music and books out there, much of that due to the extraordinarily tireless work of compiler and artist Robert Millis. His latest book is Indian Talking Machine, which chronicles Millis’ hunt for 78s in India in words and pictures. Millis is also responsible for an impressive catalog of music of his own, both solo and with Climax Golden Twins. Most recently, Abduction put out the album The Lonesome High, which includes “Marvelous Fool” and the traditional “The Drowsy Sleeper,” both of which he performed last month at Park Church Co-op. (As an aside, that album also includes “Notes on a Scandal” which he performed a couple years ago at Union Pool.) Also in this set is “Continental,” a Climax Golden Twins song from 2007’s 5 Cents a Piece. The finale, “Abstraction,” is a long ambient piece that perfectly encapsulates the intersection of Millis’ two passions, combining his guitar with, in his words, “a mixture of field recordings I have made, 78rpm record samples, and a few other oddities—put together to interact with my effects and the guitar pick up in interesting ways.”

I recorded this with the room mics set up ORTF at the stage lip, combined with a board feed from Park Church engineer Jasno Swarez. It sounds excellent. Enjoy!
