Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Just listen carefully! And let yourself be swept along!” is what one would most like to say about Michael Pelzel’s music, and then forgo any further commentary or attempt to talk about it. This is rare in contemporary music! Usually, there’s a lot that has to be explained, suitable metaphors have to be sought to try and convey what to listen for, and you have to keep telling the listener to try and be open to what the music can offer.

Pelzel’s music shines like a burning iron, right from the moment it starts, and it often unfolds a raging energy such as we otherwise normally know only Read more from free jazz, free improvised music or advanced rock. Nothing has to be explained at the outset. Instead, you can just let yourself go and enjoy this fire-trail in sound, and the extreme virtuosity of the music. Read less
