by Paul G Smyth
Deserted Village : DV17 : 2005
'The Anaesthetic' documents a set of improvised piano pieces, performed in an unlit concert in the spring of 2004. Intense and accomplished, they're presented here in the order of performance, and should be considered one complete work. As painterly as any of Smyth's visual work, this is nervous-system music with a long memory and fast heart.
Orignally released as a CDR (DV17) in 2005.
