Beat Of The Earth - Self Tittled - 1967
musician Phil Pearlman. This is the second known album
that he released and it is completely unstructured and improvised!
He just got a few musicians together, rented a studio,
then they all just jammed over the course of two sessions.
All of this was done as some sort of 'Art Project'
for the collage he was attending and I think it's safe to say
that he most likely got an A, heh.
The weird thing about Phil's albums is that
as amazing as all of them are, they were almost
completely unknown until about twenty years
after they were recorded and they've been slowly
gaining in popularity every since. Chances are,
most people won't even hear about him until
years after he's dead! But, it was the same with
most of the world's greatest artists.
There are only two tracks on this,
both a about twenty-one minutes long
and have the same tittle, but are taken from
different sessions. If you need structure in your music,
this is not the album for you, but if you're into
primal, seemingly spiritual and completely improvised
jam sessions that cause a feeling of a higher unity
between all things in existence, then this IS for you!
This album really is an artistic statement.
