Review: Whirled Music is one of the key documents of an inventive and energetic scene around the London Musicians Collective in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Originally released on David Toop's Quartz label in 1980, this LP was composed by Max Eastley. Steve Beresford. Paul Burwell and Toop, featuring a remarkable series of performances made entirely with whirled and swung instruments - from the homemade and store bought, to the traditional and even invented. In addition to variations on traditional instruments such as the bullroarer, they also made use of whirled whistles, hand drums, radios and microphones. Due to the danger this represented for both performers and audiences, the performers wore protective masks and were separated from the audience by a net. Recordings made around the time by various groupings of these musicians are gloriously anarchic real-time collages, but Whirled Music is a singularly focused affair. As Toop points out (in the newly commissioned notes contained in this reissue), these events were somewhere between composition, installation and improvisation - at once sharply focused and wildly uncontrolled.

Review: Unreleased recordings from Logos Foundation live sessions, with David Toop and Paul Burwell in Brussels, on May 7, 1977. According to Toop, they started playing together in late 1969, finding themselves wrestling with 'a new language of sound'. They studied under John Stevens in his improvisation classes at Ealing College (1971 - 1972) and also took classes at London's Africa Centre. They worked out an approach to free improvisation that expanded from simple structures and instrument combinations. Working together intensively, they explored techniques through which to 'de-condition' themselves from orthodoxies: devising exercises in listening and instrument building, studying esoteric organology, bioacoustics, environmental sound, raw music and anthropology.
