Bing & Ruth
Tomorrow Was The Golden Age
a halcyon journey to a never-ending place, where music waxes, wanes & drifts imperceptibly from silence to grand, glowing sound.
with untethered textures inspired by the indeterminate music of morton feldman & later torch bearer gavin bryars, ‘tomorrow was the golden age’ achieves canon-level quality for instrumental music. within the piece’s extended passages, bing & ruth (this time an ensemble made up of two upright bassists, two clarinetists, a cellist & a tape delay tech) wander through gradient fields of colour, illuminated by a delicate architecture of slowly developing microtonal harmonies, steve reich-ian piano lines & the same analogue tape delay that launched both brian eno’s ‘apollo’ & the greatest dub reggae engineers into the unknown.
