Seth Kasselman - Mmediate Rolls c30 (UR Sounds 002)
The solo clarinet debut from Warm Climate’s Seth Kasselman. While the instrument has been a staple of Warm Climate’s sound, Mmediate Rolls ditches rock action and affected syrup in favor of raw acoustics. Taking cues from adventurous solo performers like Roscoe Mitchell and Steve Lacy, Kasselman straddles the line between modern composition and fierce improvisation. Structured themes are put through a series of chance operations, creating the two unique performances presented here. With no extraneous instruments keeping foot, Kasselman allows himself to play with form and nuance as only a solo performer could. Edition of 200.
