Hidros 3

By Sonic Youth & Mats Gustafsson

Hidros 3


Label: Smalltown Super Jazz

Available Formats: CDDigital

Although the disc is divided into separate tracks, Hidros 3 is really one extended piece, with no gaps whatsoever. Dedicated to Patti Smith, it frequently sounds like improvisation rather than composition. The piece was recorded live at its premiere in 2000. The players were housed in small rooms of the Art museum in Ystad, Sweden, during its KulturBro festival. Jim O’Rourke was in charge of the mixing, the only performer capable of filtering the composite whole. The audience were free to wander from chamber to chamber, experiencing various subjective perspectives of the performance.

Released in: 2000
