Static Blues by Uncle Woody Sullender and Seamus Cater
The collaboration between Woody Sullender (Brooklyn, NY) and Seamus Cater (Amsterdam/UK) began in Amsterdam in 2008. Although both musicians have worked extensively in contemporary art music, they found a commonality in the folk traditions of each musician's homeland: Cater from a long tradition of English folk musicians, Sullender from North Carolina.
Their debut LP "When We Get to Meeting" (dead ceo, 2010) demonstrates an acceptance of the traditional associations of their instruments while exploring a wide range of music, equally rooted in minimalism and spectralism as in folk. At times, the result resembles the attentive quiet of Morton Feldman while other moments resemble the raucous idiomatic jams of Henry Flynt or Tetuzi Akiyama.
