Product Notes

LP version. Includes download code. No click tracks, no headphones, and no film. Just the spontaneity of performance and the sound of musicians hearing, connecting, and responding. Michael Price's first work as a composer was for contemporary dance choreographers, after which he worked as Michael Kamen's assistant on the score for Event Horizon (1997). Price has since been a part of many film score projects. He describes his 2013 string quartet EP A Stillness (ERATP 047EP) as a cathartic and inspiring experience... I saw that here were people with clear sight and great ears creating a musical family, which seemed far removed from the compromises of the commercial mainstream. And yet bringing beautiful, intelligent, forward looking music to a similarly thoughtful audience. Price follows that release with Entanglement, his debut full-length album and the fulfillment of his long-held desire to explore new musical territories. It features Price on piano, with cello, soprano voice, string orchestra, modular synthesizer, tape effects, and electronics. The cello and soprano vocal parts were written specifically and directly for cellist Peter Gregson and vocalist Ashley Knight, whose expressive voice features on tracks Maitri and The Uncertainly Principle. The lyrics for both songs are Japanese poetry sung in English, dealing with age, loss, and the inevitable fading of beauty. Other elements include street sounds from Budapest captured and processed on Price's mobile phone, as well as chamber music recorded direct to tape with vintage microphones in single takes. The Attachment was partly recorded onto a 1940s magnetic disc recorder. Price describes the album's conceptual foundation: Entanglement is a very personal expression of my obsessions: music, love, physics, and the interconnectedness of things. There is structure and freedom, chaos and control, and the beauty of ancient instruments set against impassive machines... I wanted to make an album that sounded like a dark, Berlin record store discovery from the '30s. Something that had timeless emotive power, and pre-digital rawness. Something that I hope would make a deeper connection in superficially networked times. I think there is a duty for artists to be honest, and vulnerable. Because then there is a possibility of real connection. Entanglement is both honest and vulnerable and to go through the two year process of writing, refining, and recording an album has been more intense and more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined. Recorded and mixed at Vox-Ton, Berlin.
