ARNOLD DREYBLATT AND THE ORCHESTRA OF EXCITED STRINGS

PROPELLERS IN LOVE

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP

Arnold Dreyblatt has been called “the most rock ‘n’ roll
of all the composers to emerge from New York’s downtown
scene in the 1970s.” Dreyblatt founded The Orchestra Of
Excited Strings in 1979, harnessing unusual tuning intervals
to an exuberant performance style. Propellers In Love,
the Orchestra’s second album –
originally released in 1986
on the Stasch imprint, in conjunction with the contemporary
art space Künstlerhaus Bethanien – develops Dreyblatt’s
rhythmically exacting exploration of the glittering
resonances and overtones generated by an ensemble of
uniquely-altered stringed instruments and drums.
On Propellers In Love, simple song titles – “Odd &
Even,” “Harmonics,” “Bowing” – belie intricate harmonic
structures. Dreyblatt’s modified instruments – a contrabass
and miniature piano fitted with piano wire along with violin,
all tuned in just intonation – undergo the Orchestra’s
rapid, staccato attacks. Sparkling timbres dance above interlocking
rhythmic patterns moored by sparse yet propulsive
percussion (“Pedal Tone Dance” and the title track).
Throughout, the Orchestra’s perpetual motion achieves a
tremulous and exquisite density.
Thirty years since its initial release, Propellers In Love
remains a peerless work of second-generation American
minimalism. This first-time domestic release is recommended
for fans of Glenn Branca, Ellen Fullman and Charlemagne
Palestine.
