I'd forgotten all about Taraf de Haïdouks - that was one of my most listened to groups through uni - constant essay writing soundtrack. I've barely listened to them since.

This is what happens when your record collection at 20 was 90% slsk mp3s. I have almost none of the records I listened to most at that time.
Home filesharing is killing nostalgia, people*.

(*Good riddance to most of it. Though I'm glad to remember this one. These days I buy loads more than I download, but form an emotional connection with about 1/100th of what i buy. Take that, received opinion about the ephemeral and superficial nature of digital media! pow.)

Wonderful group that I first saw in the film Latcho Drom. Gonna listen to that soundtrack now!

I'm having quite a load of Huber-CDs - more than 15 hours of music - and luckily these two releases add several new works or new versions of works to his discography. Some lovely lovely stuff on these!

I was unfamiliar with Huber. Thanks for this tip!

a little post-script to Huber:
Here's one particular beauty - among his most sparse and delicate ones I guess, and not released on CD, a.f.a.i.k.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DAtIxM5xjA - sometimes Youtube beautifully fills blank spaces in certain peoples' discographies.

Today I've been listening to about 3 hours of randomly mixed Evan Parker stuff from 1967-1981; I've been familiar with this since the early/mid 90s, yet didn't listen to most of it for several years. Old but still fresh to my ears, loved most of it!

Again, thanks for all the Huber pointers. I've now listened to a bunch of stuff on youtube. I think I most enjoyed this piece for solo and pre-recorded celli:

The Ensemble Alternance's quartet version of "Ein Hauch von Unzeit III" is among my Klaus Huber-favorites.

Here's the one from his catalogue I like best so far: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qoboybDHrM
(I sense a bit of a Charles Ives vibe here... I feel his 4th symphony has a similar atmosphere in the last movement)

Now playing:
Joseph Jarman: As if it were the seasons
I don't know... for me probably not a highlight in the early AACM-catalogue.

Ah yes, I should revisit the AACM catalog. I have a pretty cool book about them that I read halfway. It's pretty interesting though, with details of the lives of the members at an early age in Chicago.
