Armadillo Music

Robbie Lee is an improviser and sound creator in New York City, performing on an eclectic range of instruments, across the fringes of creative music in many scenes. On Prismatist he plays only two things: sopranino saxophone and tuning forks with live electronics. They are like two currents alternating through the album, a double helix of contrasting extremities. The sopranino, even higher than the soprano saxophone, twists it's way through disintegrating patterns, with a folk-like tonal element coming through the noise. Interspersed between are pieces for tuning forks and live electronics, a kind of musique concrete where the acoustic tuning forks emulate warped sine waves in the open air. They are earthy and organic, with hallucinatory psychoacoustic stereo qualities. As the Prismatist of the album's title, Robbie Lee splits sound into a spectrum color, with his highly personal musical language.
