BEE MASK - WHEN WE WERE EATING UNRIPE PEARS (LP)


"That old saw about dancing and architecture notwithstanding, I am like most people who make records in that I do not especially relish the task of writing about them. I seem to have drawn the proverbial short straw, and so it falls to me to tell you something useful about When We Were Eating Unripe Pears, a record which I recently completed, and which will be released by Spectrum Spools. The seven pieces on this LP were developed over a period of about five years. As a whole, they should probably be considered the proper "sequel" to Canzoni dal Laboratorio del Silenzio Cosmico, extending that record's preoccupation with the dream interiors of post-1965 Fellini and synthesizing (pun very much NOT intended) it with Elegy for Beach Friday's fascination with the lush and abject facets of advanced gastronomy and the embrace of the recursive, solipsistic, simultaneously expansive and claustrophobic universe of the sampler on Vaporware/Scanops. However, in direct contrast to each of those prior works, When We Were Eating Unripe Pears draws more deeply on formal ideas from the history of records than any Bee Mask release to date."
