This recording was made possible in part by grants from the Mary Flagler Charitable Trust Recording Program and the Mills College Center for Contemporary Music.
This recording has exceptionally wide dynamic range, so you should turn your stereo up loud. If the volume is not set hish, you will not hear all the quiet sounds in Sleepless. And if all the sounds in Sleepless are audible, Slam Dunk will be very loud. This is exactly as it should be.

Samples of Frith and Zorn recorded at the Knitting Factory, NYC, September 1989. Slam Dunk recorded at Mills College, Oakland, December 에서 1990 CD의 Attention Span 릴리스에 대한 크레딧, 리뷰, 트랙을 보고 쇼핑하세요. Slam Dunk recorded at Mills College, Oakland, December 1989. Sleepless tracks 1, 2, 3 & 5 recorded at Mills College, November 1989. An ironic title, missing the word short, as Ostertag samples John Zorn and Fred Frith into attention grabbing or sapping, depending ten- to 40-second blasts of mutated, manipulated sound. Of the Zorn pieces, the sax man becomes a victim of his own cut-up aesthetic as Ostertag whips up Zorn's horn parps into bullhorns, binary data, modem sounds, static, and pure granular breakdown of the digital signal. A few snatches of a melody line come to feel like fresh air after the suffocating textures Ostertag creates. Ostertag released Attention Span in 1990, featuring Frith on guitars and John Zorn on saxophone. Ostertag followed Attention Span with the release of Sooner or Later, his musical response to his years in El Salvador and the first part of a trilogy to treat the themes of grief, anger, and joy. In 1992, The Kronos Quartet commissioned a new work from Ostertag. This commission produced the landmark work Bob Ostertag: All the Rage. Ostertag composed the piece using a recording of a riot for gay rights in San Francisco. Additional info Collaboration with Ostertag and Frith.
