about

Rhys Chatham’s Harmonie du soir presents three heavenly compositions. The title track is the first major piece written for the configuration of six electric guitars, electric bass and drums since Die Donnergötter (1986). The second is The Dream of Rhonabwy, a piece written for large brass ensemble and percussion, realized in 2012 by a 70-piece brass band called Harmonie de Pontarlier, lead by the French conductor Patrick Erard. The last track on the CD version and bonus download for the vinyl edition is a 2012 studio performance of Drastic Classicism Revisited featuring Rhys Chatham, David Daniell, and Ryan Sawyer. The whole package is presented lovingly, mastered beautifully by James Plotkin, with extensive notes by Mr. Chatham.

“[Rhys Chatham] is one of noise rock’s founding fathers. Without him, there would be no Sonic Youth, no Jesus and Mary Chain, no My Bloody Valentine . . . he remains a towering figure among six-string aficionados.” — Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune, author of Wilco: Learning How to Die

“It might justly be considered music to pray to.” — Will Hermes, The New York Times

“Surging phosphorescence… Uplifting.” — David Fricke, Rolling Stone

“Stunning.” — Byron Coley, Wire Magazine
