“Robert Paredes (1948-2005) was a composer, multi-woodwind performer, writer and visual artist. He taught electronic music, composition and experimental performance at The University of Iowa, where he received both the MA and Ph.D degrees in composition, studying principally with Kenneth Gaburo.”
Forgetting And Remembering is a really nice experimental classical / electronic effort featuring two half-hour pieces of prime evening soak—perfect for when you’re floating solo for the duration. The title piece (1986) contains seven tracks of solo clarinet–each one played on a different day without ever listening to the other tracks–and could easily zone a whole new kind of abandoned parking lot deep into the middle of your mind. Needless to say, it’s loose and playful, yet fully star-staring all at once.
