Robert Rutman/U.S. Steel Cello Ensemble: Bitter Suites
This is a recording of a concert by Robert Rutman and his steel cello’s recorded sometime in the late 70’s at a New York Art Gallery. If you are unfamiliar with the Steel Cello Ensemble, it’s basically a few people playing large sheets of metal which produce totally amazing, spooky, droning outer-space sounds. Very much in the same league as Bertoia’s sound sculptures. Really wanted to include a good scan of one of the cello’s but the pics on the back of this cover are tiny and horrible – however, you can go here and listen to MP3’s, and see a picture of one of these things.
