The Hafler Trio - One Dozen Ecomomical Stories By Peter Greenaway

From Allmusic.com : "During the period from 1989 through 1993, filmmaker and painter Peter Greenaway and Hafler Trio's Andrew McKenzie collaborated on this work, which consists of 12 of Greenaway's short texts, "corrupted, manipulated, and accompanied" by the Hafler Trio. The CD comes with a booklet containing all 12 stories with diagrams for tying knots on the opposite pages. Most of the music is very similar to other Hafler Trio albums, with drones, crackles, and loops featured most prominently. There are fewer field recordings than on other albums, with only tracks three and ten containing a few bird calls. Track two is a techno dance track, with spooky altered vocals hovering in the background. Tracks five and 12 are exclusively prerecorded material, an old scratchy guitar recording on five and a pop song from the 1950s on 12. The sixth track is very similar to Steve Reich's phase-shifting tape works, such as "Come Out" or "It's Gonna Rain."

"One Dozen Economical Stories By Peter Greenaway" was released by Sub Rosa in 1994.
