Meditation Bells and gongs from Bali, Java, Korea, Japan, India, China and Tibet, where these instruments are often used to stun the mind and capture the awareness in meditation, create the matrix from which this music has developed. On this recording, a large collection of these instruments was played by Mark Nauseef. Like star constellations, the bells and gongs project from within and through the major element of this musical environment, space. This space, which has been arranged and orchestrated by chief subterranean navigator Bill Laswell, is the setting for displays of virtuosity from ney player Kudsi Erguner and trumpet player Markus Stockhausen. Laswell’s bass is the vehicle of forward movement, creating streams and clusters while all players send long lines, short phrases and single tones into space and observe subtle changes such as speed of vibration, overtones / harmonics and microtonal movement. Laswell’s beyond gaseous ambience is reflected in the title NO MATTER. As in yoga, where elements such as breath, gazing and attitude are not made of matter but are integral to good practice, this music’s essence is not a matter of form that can be described but may be experienced through complete attention and absorption by the listener.

Bill Laswell (bass); Kudsi Erguner (ney); Karlheinz Stockhausen (trumpet, flute, electronics); Mark Nauseef (percussion)
