polinos Great set of repetitive but never dull compositions for (mainly) different clarinets with nods to minimalists Riley and Reich but most of all reminding me of John Surmans 'Withholding Pattern'.

Carsten Pieper This Polish clarinetist/composer is the one artist that stuck with me from Bandcamp's reedists-pushing-boundaries article. He might be far from being the most extreme artist featured there, but by far the one most impressing me. Probably this album can be compared to John Surman's Upon Reflection? Well, at least it appeals to me in a similar way.
Minimal, jazzy, ambient, all these tags apply, I think... Favorite track: Five Clarinets.
