"Act Five, Scene One" is an hour-long instrumental piece that features the trio of David Grubbs, Tony Conrad, and Dan Brown. You'll find it divided into four psychedelically digestible fifteen-minute slices. Ah, the places you'll go -- it's an hour of sawing and banging and riffing and cutting and (let's not mince words) shapeshifting. What the hell. . . here are a few possible reference points: Brian Eno's Music for Films and Discreet Music; Rodney Graham's Verwandlungsmusik; Workshop's longer pieces; Sun Ra (New Stream mode); The Fall (but languorous and wordless); Bruce Witsiepe's guitar sound on the first Circle X record. Also highway driving (solitary); a pinball game; a dream about breathing underwater."
