"Next is the appropriately titled second solo recording by Glenn Kotche, recorded during a brief break with his regular musical companions Wilco and OnFillmore. Similar at the most primary level with it's electro-acoustic/concrete predecessor Introducing, Next is an acoustic attempt at exploring the concept that Kotche refers to as coincidental rhythms -- or rhythms out of the range of contrivance and design. To increase the sound possibilities of these rhythms, Kotche employs a number of homemade mallets, sticks, and drum head preparations. Much like what John Cage's work with Sonatas and Interludes did for the piano, Glenn is attempting to do for the drum. Next creates sounds and textures that break free of the conventional ideas of drum music."
