Andrew Bernstein - Thought Forms III

Andrew Bernstein plays sax with the mighty Horse Lords, and here's some of his solo work. The three part suite Thought Forms comes from the 2015 release Cult Appeal. It's like the ecstatic minimalism of Henry Flynt or the overblowing arpeggiation of Colin Stetson. Using circular breathing Bernstein plays a stream of rapid notes of ridiculous length, constantly pulling away from the tonal centre and teasing a return, every minor resolution bringing a tiny wave of bliss. It's tidal music, raw and harsh, exhausting in its relentless virtuosity. Brilliant.
