  1. Apr 06,  · Gravity has been described as an avant-garde "dance" record that draws on rhythm and dance from folk music across the world. Allmusic called it one of the most important experimental guitar titles from Fred Frith. "The Boy Beats the Rams (Kluk Tluce Berany)" – "Spring Any Day Now" – "Don't Cry For Me" –
  2. Went to see Fred Frith here in Cleveland. Good, but short (I think the set was something 47 minutes 9 seconds, I posted the exact set time somewhere else) solo guitar performance. He did lots of what you'd expect from Fred Frith, ie looping, using things like effects pedals, ash trays, drumsticks, knitting needles, brushes, a violin bow, an E-bow, etc to get lots of strange sounds from his ES

  5. Frith had released a solo album in the interim, Guitar Solos (a series of improvised—you guessed it—guitar solos), and a final album with Henry Cow in , Western Culture. For Gravity, Frith teamed up with two Rock In Opposition stalwarts for another look at song-form, dance .
  6. Watch the video for Dancing in Rockville, Maryland from Fred Frith's Gravity for free, and see the artwork, lyrics and similar artists.
  7. Dec 08,  · Gravity is the most lighthearted of Frith's solo output, actually. It is Frith's celebration of dance from all cultures. Perhaps it is the streak of dance-music appreciation that caused him to collaborate on the musical score to Sally Potter's The Tango Lesson. Percussion is light and largely marked with handclaps.
