Historically speaking, many different sub-idioms and approaches to music have been nominated as SPACE MUSIC. A few of these landmarks would include: Sun Ra, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Gyorgi Ligeti, The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, The Forbidden Planet Soundtrack, New Age Music, Space Age Bachelor Pad, Sputnik-Telstar Pop Instrumentals, ECM, Krautrock, Brian Eno, Modern Electronic Music, Tape Music, etc. That list could go on and on. Here, three old friends reflect and rebound among those various touchstones and project themselves into new and unexplored sectors of Space Music. Chris and Henry have been playing together for over 40 years, and at the end of CD 1 is one archival track of them playing their arrangement of Bela Bartok s Violin Duo #36, transformed into cosmic guitar music. Many curious musical juxtapositions are to be found on this album, such as: What would Derek Bailey, Sun Ra, and Randy California sound like playing together? What would Frank Zappa playing with Robert Fripp, and Don Buchla sound like? How about Keith Jarret playing with Pete Cosey, and Conlon Nancarrow at a guitar tribute to Ligeti? Or perhaps Perrey and Kingsley vs. Sonny Sharrock at the Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade? Everything here is in the spirit of all surprises, all fun, all the time.
