eartrip – issue 3

Greetings.

issue3-cover2

Well, it’s been quite some time since the last issue: there are many excuses, as ever, including, at the moment, a steady ratcheting up of my work-load as University Finals creep ever nearer. So you’ll have to excuse my tardiness in writing and gathering material: I was probably buried deep inside a volume of Hegel or something of the sort.

But, in any case, issue 3 has now arrived – inside is an article on Pharoah Sanders and another on Ghedalia Tazartes, an interview with Graham Collier, and the usual Reviews Section, which includes some extended pieces on, among other things, Henry Grimes’ poetry and a rather wonderful re-issue from Ken Hyder’s Talisker.

But perhaps most significant is SOUND JOURNEY, the MP3 Compilation Album which accompanies the text element of the magazine. 11 tracks from a diverse range of improvisers, including Alexander Hawkins, Dominic Lash and Ilia Belorukov. For more details, go to this page: Sound Journey: Eartrip Compilation # 1

As always, I welcome your comments and criticisms. The inevitable facebook group awaits additional members at this clumsily long link: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/group.php?gid=19083591008&ref=ts. And there’s always the comment button below this post, or good old e-mail.

So, here it is: Issue 3 of eartrip, with, appropriately enough, three links to choose from.
