Cory Allen‘s new album, The Source, travels to a place where avant-garde composition, free jazz drums, and eastern mysticism merge as one. Across the span of four long form pieces, the music shifts from lush string sections and gongs to passionate free drumming and Rhodes piano, to the meditative drones of Hammond organ, tanpura, and harmonium.
These works were composed using performance rules, pitch pools, and guided improvisation in a musical style Allen refers to as psychedelic minimalism. The sessions for The Source were superbly captured at three different studios in Austin: Estuary Recording Facility, Stuck On On, and Altered Ear.
