Aufgehoben - Fragments of the Marble Plan (2012)
This was my first experience with Aufgehoben, a noisy free-jazz band who was formed in London about 12 years ago. Fragments of the Marble Plan is their 5th album, and it is quite a daunting album at that. While I imagine most will be quite put off by this album, if you were a fan of White Suns- Sinews (2012), but wished it was a little more free-jazz oriented at times, than this album will probably be up your alley.
The album has 2 drummers on it, though the drums are slightly mixed down and have much more of an emphasis on cymbals and hi hats. Still, the drumming is the only backbone this has holding it together in any form of song structure.
There is no Bandcamp for this up, so one track from the album
and one live track
will have to suffice for now.
