From the depths these guitar passages have traversed, there is a place, a ledge that can be scaled. Perched just above the immense surge of tranquilizing flux, thoughts are partially your own. Back down... and the world becomes Chris Brokaw's vista. Sonic energy stretched across undisturbed dimensions. The flow resembling titanic under earth currents of molten mass. But these transcending guitar creations do not burn, only melt thoughts in a most cherished way. With each listen, the sonic gravity of Music for Peter Hutton holds heavy. Maybe its the the listeners constitution for massive drone or just plain fortune, but there was a moment to see a route back up. And now, on this small outcropping, these words are collected.
Recently released on compact disc by Tape Drift, Chris Brokaw recorded this music to accompany screenings of Peter Hutton's silent films. This particular set was recorded live at Northwest Film Forum in Seattle by Brenan Chambers. Two tracks, one thirty five minute guitar slow burner and an additional six minute field recording heavy track, titled Boston Fire. The release is available from the label's website, on it's own or part of the most recent batch. The batch deal includes Rambutan's Temple of Echo 3, described a week ago and Tape Drift's 100th release, also a Rambutan composition.
