cover
Jim Denley is no common or garden flute player. His concept of a beautiful sound would probably make James Galway write another book (heaven forbid!). From the tiniest whispered whistle to the loudest shriek, Denley's pallette of sounds is extraordinary. Carefully captured in true stereo, this recording makes you feel as though you're inside Denley's head, making the sounds yourself. This is his first solo CD, and not his last. Experience the world of 'the other flute'.
CONTENTS

music by Jim Denley

Dark matter
being....and other logical burps
ringing in the empty sky
physics and other amputations of the self
gone to town in pitch dark
The mirror and the slapstick cadavers, cargo cultists
aestheticists of not knowing
southerly busters
polarising the sky with coal dust
ringing the bell
warning the horizon as the intergalactic flax dag mutters darkly

REVIEWS

'Jim Denley does far more than hold the attention just by making lots of different sounds (though the range of sounds he is able to coax from the instrument is astonishing in itself) or by prodigious displays of technique (though it is obvious he is a virtuoso) - he makes an intense and powerful artistic statement.'
Ed Baxter, Resonance (UK), September 1992


'... Jim Denley's abstract improvising is limpid and refreshing ... The use of flute is definitive; the full gamut of available resources are constantly employed ... there is a welcomely austere approach to improvising ... In Denley's brave exposed soliloquies the limitations of improvisation are beseiged; the results are of a rarified and special quality.'
Chris Dench, Sounds Australian, Autumn 1992
