James Bailey - Dimensions

   0 reviews  -  55 views
    Sounds like a bag of hammers falling down a long metal staircase, or a drop of rain on your cheek. James Bailey mostly lived in the east end of Toronto, except for four years in England as a wee child. He's been making noises with whatever was available for most of his life, with only a few (failed) attempts at formal training on any sort of "real" instrument. He started recording things after the acquisition of a good-quality open-reel recorder in 1973 (Tandberg 3341X). Most acoustic sound sources are found objects either played as is or modified into something resembling an instrument, though he usually refer to the things as "implements." Electronics are often employed for sound manipulation, or as a source by themselves. He still uses open-reel tape recorders, frequently in a delay arrangement (a.k.a. Time Lag Accumulator, Frippertronics).

    This album "Dimensions" was released independently in 1986 and is available from https://broken-music.com/products/james-bailey-dimensions. Also released a 3" cd-r "Little Bag o'Loops" in 2004 now out of print, but available for download at the listed bandcamp site.

    James hosted a strange, weird, experimental, electro-acoustic, modern orchestral/chamber, improvisedradio programme on the now defunct CKLN-FM for over twenty years, and can now be heard on Wednesday evenings at 23:00 Eastern (NA) time on http://www.ciut.fm.
