This is Burnt Friedman's fourth studio full-length for the Nonplace label. Navigating an atypical musical expedition, Burnt Friedman's unusual trajectory curved its way through an adolescent obsession with percussion and a singular dedication to amassing a self-recorded audio library dating from1978. What followed in the late '80s was a period of art academia, performance and video art, then immersion in the first flurry of collaborative music projects. Since 1993, he released records under various names, and began working as Flanger with Uwe Schmidt aka Atom TM. As a result of annual travels to Australia and New Zealand, The Nu Dub Players took shape in 1997. In the year 2000, Friedman founded his own label, Nonplace, to ensure continuity for diverse musical adventures. Then there was the first collaborative effort in 2001 with Jaki Liebezeit and Joseph Suchy, which successfully combined odd meter rhythms, improvisation between electronic and acoustic instruments and a global view on music. Burnt Friedman's sound-sculpting signature has fully developed intuitively with true emotional maximalism. Guest contributors also include Hayden Chisholm (composer and reed player), singers Steve Spacek, Barbara Panther, Theo Altenberg, Daniel Dodd-Ellis and Enik as well as guitarist Joseph Suchy. Although First Night Forever houses the complete spectrum of 7 years' psychedelic audio wizardry, the record's aim is to reach a wide audience. Burnt's earlier solo productions, Con Ritmo (2000), Plays Love Songs (2001) and Can't Cool (2003) might have confused with their stylistic freedom and intricate perfectionism, but First Night Forever will simply enthrall everyone with a sense of eroticism.
