“Sky Burial” is the first recording of composer Jeremiah Cymerman’s Amplified Quartet featuring trumpeters Nate Wooley & Peter Evans and saxophonist Matt Bauder. Recorded during a three day residency at Brooklyn’s Roulette in the summer of 2012 the album is the second release on Cymerman’s label 5049 Records and stands as a major new contribution to traditions of electroacoustic music and free improvisation. Over the course of five tracks and 55 minutes the quartet pushes the boundaries of their instruments to soaring new heights of virtuosity and insanity, all of which is intensified by the hyper cut-up techniques of Cymerman's trademark post-production and editing. As individuals Cymerman, Wooley, Bauder and Evans having been taking their instrumental language to the farthest reaches of creativity and “Sky Burial” is a powerful new document that has to be heard to be believed.
It is strongly suggested that this album be listened to on either good quality headphones or stereo, NOT earbuds or crappy computer speakers!
