OFFICER! – Paragraphs and Principles. A Tribute to Cornelius Cardew (Jelodanti/Klanggalerie, LP/digital)

To call Cornelius Cardew a radical is more (or: less?) than an understatement. That is why his work continues to provide inspiration for numerous new projects even more than four decades after his death. The album »Paragraphs and Principles« by the group OFFICER! around Mick Hobbs comprises some new interpretations of Cardew's works, but juxtaposes them with new music composed in his spirit. Synth-pop and rock music, electro-acoustic experiments and big band pieces come together in a wild potpourri.
