Carsten Pieper Moraine's Dennis Rea in far-eastern mode. Nice, calming melodies as in Three Views and more ambient pieces... Favorite track: Three Views From Chicheng Precipice.

about

Internationally-acclaimed for his work with MoonJune artists art-rock juggernaut Moraine (MJR028), and free-jazz provocateurs Iron Kim Style (MJR031), guitarist and composer Dennis Rea has been a key presence on the Pacific Northwest creative music scene for decades.With Views From Chicheng Precipice, his most ambitious release to date, he presents a completely different but equally-compelling facet of his musical personality. Blending striking arrangements of ancient and contemporary themes with sonic experimentation and expansive improvisation, Views from Chicheng Precipice is boldly unorthodox in its choice of instrumentation and treatment of traditional musical material (while remaining warmly respectful of its sources): incorporating techniques such as reharmonization, chromaticism, and free improvisation, and; incoporating noise, effects and amplification. The result is a sonorous and surprising listening experience that goes far beyond typical attempts at "East-West fusion." Rea’s MoonJune solo debut is an heartfelt homage to the music of East Asia, filled with moments of stunning beauty and intrigue.
