Subjects of Desire

CD $12

Jim Ryan's Subjects of Desire is concerned with individual freedom and its troubled relationship with desire of all sorts. The free-form verse revolves around the need for recognition from another, who also demands attention. Ryan's poetry draws on his background consorting with the Beats in Paris. The poetry and the music from from of the best improvisers in the Sann Francisco Bay Area intertwine majestically to create an allegorical epic.

"...well planned and cleverly realized...when the intertwining of bewildering sounds (instruments include flute, cello, keyboards, electronics and percussion) and voices reaches the boiling stage, we finally realize that one thing is unrepentant liberty informed by skilful eagerness..."
-Massimo Ricci, Temporary Fault

"His latest disc clearly delves deeply into obscure avant-garde/noise territory." - Sea of Tranquility
