I.e., nothing at all like "KC's Discipline, but with a more teeth-clenched fury"
Not what I would have expected from "Triskaidekiphobie" and “Le Poison Qui Rend Fou," but sometimes artist evolve in unexpected or even unwelcome directions I guess.

Ives' Scherzo (Over the Pavements) is notable for its quirky sense of humor and some echoes of pre-WWI ragtime. Interesting that American composers seem to get more respect in Netherlands than they do in the US.

Not withstanding that there's been a hardcore jazz scene since at least the 30's, the VPRO has been the anarchistic public broadcaster for many decades, and I only quit my membership recently. They never were narrow minded, besides the first nude woman on television and several questions in parliament about offensive jokes, they also had Captain Beefheart in a prime time absurdistic comedy show, they made a documentary about hiphop with LL and others from 86 which is still about the only serious footage that is out there. They were always on top of anything new and interesting, or old, almost forgotten, but interesting.There are many more examples, and let's not start about their radio division. But that is no more, even this show Vrije Geluiden (Free Sounds) has stopped recently. It never was or meant to be a big audience show, it was all kinds of music that was somewhat out of the ordinary, and often a bit too far out or too exotic for me, on the sunday morning.

I saw them live. It was one of the best concert experiences of my life. They played this song where I was very familiar with too and I only recognized it near the end. I had never heard of them but simply ended up there spontaneously allthough the venue was packed, I didn't know the beautiful 1920's venue either allthough walking past it almost every day, I was with good friends and intoxicated in more than one way, and Ralph Carney was amazing on stage presence, the sax, the alt sax and both saxes the same time while rolling on the floor. You ride into town on a monday to get something to eat, you encounter a few friends, and a few hours later you're completely flabbergasted, lovely evening.

In keeping with its journey out of the noisy musical world of industrial music, Nocturnal Emissions’ Cathedral features serene and sparse ambient music. The patterns on this album develop slowly, if not minimalistically. Delicate, often iridescent electronics form drones or little figures which loop in slow progressions. Dissonant sounds are often used, but usually so subtly that they nearly escape notice, or do little more than bring you to alertness. From time to time, unobtrusive concrete sounds similar to tiny whistles, clocks, hinges, water gurgles, sandpaper rubbings, etc appear. Though the group cycles numerous pitches and timbres through any one piece, the music’s serenity is maintained by its near static patterns. With three of the five pieces being 12- to 24-minutes long, nothing happens fast, yet the music is never boring.
--Tom Grove

I remember seeing these guys performing at a free concert in Copley Square (Boston MA) early summer of 1977, don't think I've heard any of their work since. This piece is from an album they released circa 1980:




[edit: Wait, I have heard some of David Moss' work since: He plays on one of my favorite albums, Bill Laswell's Baselines from 1983.]
