With this anniversary edition featuring 14 exclusive tracks, Nonplace celebrates 10 years of label-dom. Ever since Burnt Friedman shortened Nonplace Urban Field to Nonplace back in 2000, the title has provided an ideal formula for music that soars upward with no intention of being pinned down. The best-known label project is Friedman's collaboration with Jaki Liebezeit, one of the most important drummers of our times (Can). They joined forces in order to quietly transgress musical idioms without demonstrative gestures of destruction and deconstruction. With breathtaking precision, their cyclical, uneven rhythms intermesh the played with the programmed: sequences, drums, synthesizers. In spite of rules and binding expressive forms, the strangely abstract, improvised ritual music that results falls somewhere between trance, dub, differentiation and reflection. Nonplace has existed as long as they've worked together. Since Hayden Chisholm (wind instruments) and Joseph Suchy (electric guitar) began working with Nonplace, they have made their mark on numerous label releases. Moving steadily away from jazz into unknown territory, Chisholm co-authors The Embassadors (Friedman is the producer), and pops up on numerous other Nonplace tracks. Listen without preconceptions, become a medium, risk playing a game with no rules: the subconscious reactions associated with blind spots in causal history equally hold true for the playing of Joseph Suchy. The compilation also features five tracks by Flanger. This cooperation between AtomTM and Friedman began in Chile in 1996 with Atari computers, samplers, and Akai MPC 3000, and resulted in three programmed post-jazz album releases on Ninja Tune. Since 2005, Flanger has been publishing on Nonplace. Rashad Becker, the label's resident mastering engineer, not only mastered the anniversary CD but remixed three back-catalog tracks at the same time. In addition, Mark Ernestus (Rhythm & Sound) mixed and co-produced a previously-unreleased Embassadors title.
