Polica / s t a r g a z e Bruise Blood: Reimagining Steve Reichs Music for Pieces of Wood A collaboration between Polica and electronic pop band s t a r g a z e, re-imagining and re-recording Steve Reich's famous 1973 composition Music For Pieces Of Wood. The first of a pair of records from this collaboration, this release sees them take minimalist pioneer Steve Reich’s Music For Pieces of Wood corrupting its polyrhythms across a continuous twenty minutes of music, pushing the boundaries of both artists in a truly engrossing and transportative collaboration.

s t a r g a z e / Greg Saunier Deerhoof Chamber Variations Berlin instrumental collective s t a r g a z e's Deerhoof Chamber Variations is [more or less] a continuous piece of music based on 9 1/2 songs Greg Saunier originally wrote for Deerhoof Different from most other band and orchestra/classical collaborations Greg himself arranged and recomposed the material for a classical chamber ensemble, using exactly the same notes as in the originals while rearranging the songs structurally, in a kind of miniaturizing and abstracting way. s t a r g a z e adapted this new composition to their particular line-up and the musicians' personal skills, as Greg Saunier produced the album in Berlin in the freezing winter days of December 2015. The intimacy is evident - favouring the dry sound of the Beatles' and George Martin's approach to recording classical ensembles, rather than a the lush approach favoured today. Transgressive LP
