One of my favorite pieces of music

David Torn, from Cloud About Mercury.

I love this piece. Bill Bruford’s Simmons-assisted accompaniment, Levin on bass, the lyrical Oriental shadings from Torn’s guitar. The 80’s were a tremendously fertile period for musicians who stretched electronic and compositional chops. This piece really culminates in the lines of technology that were being advanced, by Bill Bruford namely, and others…

I could listen to this piece of music all day and not grow tired of it, it has angles and shapes that can been seen in different ways.
