Review by admireArt
4 stars A young man's or woman's guide to the myriad of possibilities in the use of Frippertronics.

Frippertronics, (a term coined by poet Joanna Walton, Fripp's girlfriend in the late 1970s), is an analog delay system consisting of two reel-to-reel tape recorders situated side-by-side. It evolved from a system of tape looping originally developed in the electronic music studios of the early 1960s which was FIRST used by early Minimalism, electronic music composers Terry Riley and Pauline Oliveros and then made POPULAR through its use in what was named "Ambient" music a term coined after composer Brian Eno's multiple recording experiments with it. Through these experiments Robert Fripp came in contact with this recording technique and ended up associated with it due to the fact before mentioned and of course Mr. Fripp's weapon of choice for experimenting.

The electric guitar sound as such became elastic and mutable in the hands of the Crimson King. His open minded, relentless attitude, transfigured the known guitar school into the unknown one. The electric guitar sound entered the realms of electronic "bleeps", drones, noises, metallic slidings, glitching glissandos, canon like ocean waves sweepings, deconstructions and reconstructions, even its fire power solos turned into something else.

So, already forwarned subtly that this Fripp CLEVELAND,OH, USA JUNE 14, 1979 -RECORD REVOLUTION live release, is not a King Crimson album, let me explain what to expect besides this "new" guitar idiom.

Imagine the slow progression of alternate electric guitar short structures, be them bleeps, noises, short or long, back n forth dronings, short circuit pizzicatos or arpeggios, among long chords of repeating string like unmelodic melodies and seagull like minimalistic solos, as they by addition start to counterpoint each other in an oncoming and ongoing ocean wave like movement, whose unexpected directions are "controlled" and transfixed by the single performer's talent, dexterity, vision, heart and knowledge of his technological possibilities.

Its multiple structures title track "Music For Revolutions" is presented and recorded as an independent organism which grows outside itself as it goes through several modulations and simultaneous modifications and reconstructions.

This 2 CD release is a must if you already are caught by this form of Fripp's electric guitar expression. If not, feel lucky and indulge in one of Robert Fripp's most intelligent and heartfelt, top of the game, late 70s, live FRIPPERTRONICS performances.

****4.5 PA stars.
