Far Corner - Far Corner (2004)



Far Corner biography
FAR CORNER from Milwaukee (Wisconsin) formed in the spring of 2003 and surprised with an absolutely bracing, self-titled, debut. The quartet - mainly composed of bass, piano/keyboards, drums and cello - managed it to create a mixture of chamber music, zheul, rock and jazz. But regarding the cello one might also spot a slight heavy metal kind of style. According to their homepage they were influenced by Stranvinsky and Bartok as well as several prog bands from the 70's.

Their self-titled debut features composed as well as improvised music, everything very interesting and quite new according to the style.

If you like zheul, so called chamber rock with jazzy piano and don't mind a sometimes quite heavy, distorted cello you should check out FAR CORNER immediately. Tut! Check them out anyway, I'm sure you'll love it.

______________________________________________


Milwaukee avant-rock quartet highly influenced by Stravinsky and Bartok. Their material is a blend of contemporary classical chamber music and rock with a touch of jazz - think Stravinsky and Bartok injected with some Jeff Beck and MAHAVISHNU. All four members are seasoned musicians, boasting either some classical training and/or years of performing experience in rock and jazz venues. They were masterminded by keyboardist Dan Maske (PAR LINDH PROJECT, TEMPUS, PARALLEL MIND) who handles the Grand piano, Hammond organ, synths and percussion. He is surrounded by bassist William Kopecky (of metal power trio KOPECKY and The FLYIN' RYAN BROTHERS), cellist Angela Schmidt, who sometimes uses a fuzz box to substitute for thrashing electric guitar parts, and drummer/percussionist Craig Walker who navigates off meters and rapid changes with aplomb.

Their eponymous album, released in September 2004, consists of a mixture of well structured pieces, some wild improvisation and a mixture of both, yet the music always stays focused even when the instruments' traditional limits are stretched (e.g., cello played in a heavy metal style, electric bass playing passages more akin to classical music). The result sounds like a blend of early ELP, KING CRIMSON, UNIVERS ZERO and PRESENT.

If you are looking for entertaining and provocative soundscapes, do lend an ear to FAR CORNER. A truly 'progressive' band.
