Lazyness, I guess, and a kind of Tellus overdose at some point. But I still think a CD box set of all issues would make a lot of sense. Maybe someone else with more boldness – and more money– will do it someday. Thanks for your interest.

Jace Clayton – The Julius Eastman Memory Depot, CD on New Amsterdam Records, March 2013 [full album now hosted on BandCamp – click on “bc” above]
David Friend, Emily Manzo, piano Arooj Aftab, voice Jace Clayton, sound processing
Jace Clayton, aka DJ/rupture, has gone a long way since 2001’s mashup-cum-collage manifesto Gold Teeth Thiefmix (essential listening– see tracklist here). His motto of deconstructing musical artifacts, breathing new life into dead corpses, has often given life to many Golem-like creatures. His version of two of Julius Eastman's classic piano pieces from 1979–80 is comparatively more respectful, yet no less poignant for that. Recorded live at NYC's Merkin Concert Hall, these beautiful piano performances are indeed enhanced by non-intrusive electronic inputs and processed samples from Clayton.
