180g LP including art print poster. "Far from any recognizable jazz or new music, Sharp's evocative fluidity and ambiguous intensity bring to mind Carmine Coppola's soundtrack for Apocalypse Now, filtered through the new school of electronic music exemplified by Tim Hecker and Ben Frost." - MUSICWORKS "Jason Sharp boils down the detritus of fragmented abstraction to its molten essence." - JAZZWISE Jason Sharp has emerged as one of Canada's most fascinating new music composers in recent years. From his roots as a saxophonist in Montréal's fertile jazz and improv scene, Sharp developed as a soloist with drone-based durational music, circular breathing, and an increasing exploration of the body and technology. His impressive 2016 debut A Boat Upon Its Blood is a roiling and musically diverse work of modern composition inspired by a Robert Creeley poem, distinguished by Sharp's use of a heart monitor and amplified breath to trigger various rhythmic and textural electronic elements - alongside his own saxophone playing and contributions from guest players on violin and lap steel guitar. Stand Above The Streams expands on this approach, with Sharp having further developed his custom Midi and synthesis apparatuses, and most notably collaborating on these compositions with Adam Basanta, whose renowned practice in sound art, sound installation and autonomous sound systems makes for impressively immersive, layered and complex new work. All sound sources on Stand Above The Streams originate with Sharp (with the exception of violin from the album's co-producer and mixing engineer Jesse Zubot on one song): bass and baritone saxophones, heartbeat, pulse, and breathing are played/processed in real time through Sharp's own signal-bending synthesis rig and through Basanta's bespoke 'controlled feedback' amplification system. The album's rhythms are generated wholly from Sharp's similarly controlled breathing and heart rate. The results are utterly gripping, with melodic and micro-tonal elements flowing amidst waves of atmospheric pink and brown noise, low-end modulation and calibrated distortion. *Constellation
