James Tenney Guitar MP3

It’s hard to keep track of the ever-expanding catalog at, but among its “Recent Additions” is a slew of old Tellus cassette compilations. Tellus number 14, issued in 1986, was focused on just intonation and included recorded work by Harry Partch, Lou Harrison, John Bischoff (in a trio with Jim Norton and Tim Perkis) and others. One exemplary track is James Tenney‘s “Septet for Electric Guitars” (MP3), five or so minutes of multi-string activity that sounds like gentler, more introspective takes on what Sonic Youth and Glenn Branca were also up to at the time.
