Eclectic Bassist Bill Laswell Releases Two Distinct Digital Albums at Once
Experimental/avant-garde bassist, producer, and composer Bill Laswell has released back-to-back albums as part of his M.O.D. Technologies’ Incunabula Digital Series.
One album, On Brion Gysin, features the spoken word work of the late poet, photographer and filmmaker Ira Cohen, incorporated into Laswell’s music, in tribute to the work of the late artist and writer Gysin, who pioneered the cut-up writing technique that so heavily influenced writer William S. Burroughs.
The other is a one-track album called Untaken Path. It pairs Laswell’s electric bass with acoustic drumming from Japan’s premier drummer, Hideo Yamaki on a 15-minute track that shares the same name as the album.

1. On Brion Gysin 1
