Lee Ranaldo, Jim Jarmusch, Marc Urselli, Balazs Pandi ‎– S/T LP


Marc Urselli brings together influential film maker and musician Jim Jarmusch, Lee Ranaldo with drummer Balasz Pandi for studio session on a cold winter day New York based producer and engineer Marc Urselli (Nick Cave, Mike Patton, John Zorn) had the idea to bring people together who had never met before and let that meeting of minds create beautiful soundscapes. Film director and musician Jim Jarmusch, Sonic Youth co-founder and guitarist Lee Ranaldo shared space with versatile drummer Balázs Pándi (plays regulary with Keiji Haino, Venetian Snares, Merzbow) for a night session at Urselli’s EastSide Sound studio in downtown NY. These are the unfiltered results. Absorbing instrumental patterns of cinematic sounds and improvised rhythms. No overdubs, no editing. All was recorded live and analog, produced and mixed by Marc Urselli. The front/back cover were taken by photographer William Semeraro in Norway. That is why Marc Urselli gave all the songs titles that come from Norwegian mythology. LEE RANALDO Lee Ranaldo co-founded Sonic Youth – one of the most original and influencing bands in the modern music-world, founded in 1981 – has been active on the New York music and art scene for the past 35 years as composer performer producer, also exhibiting visual art and publishing several books of journals and poetry.

BALAZS PANDI In his book “Life is a Rip-Off” John Olson describes Balazs Pandi as a drummer who “has all the corner chops covered from Repulsion-blast beasts to the futuristic urban free scree of the New York Art Ensemble. Starting out a metal thrash & hardcore skin pounder of local energy units, Balazs soon dove headfirst into the avant jazz world and has since jammed with Wadada Leo Smith, Arthur Doyle, Trevor Dunn, Jamie Saft, Joe Morris & Roswell Rudd. [_] Pandi has also branched into the PA-mangling world of free electronics scattered with continued live and studio recordings with the master of noise Masami Akita aka Merzow, free-sludge rockers Porn, Bill Laswell, Justin Broadrick – and jazz crossed-stream polluters Mats Gustafsson & Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore.” Balazs is also a journalist of music and culture. Balazs lives and works in Budapest, Hungary. Lee Ranaldo – guitar, pedals, bells Jim Jarmusch – guitar, pedals, mini-synthesizer Marc Urselli – bass, laptop Balázs Pándi – drums
