1. Product Details

Break Stuff is what happens after formal elements have been addressed. Vijay Iyer calls the break a span of time in which to act. Its the basis for breakdowns breakbeats and break dancing... it can be the moment when everything comes to life. A number of the pieces here are breakdowns of other Iyer constructions. Some are from a suite premiered at New Yorks Museum of Modern Art some derive from Open City a collaboration with novelist Teju Cole and large ensemble. The trio energetically recasts everything it touches. Hood is a tribute to Detroit techno pioneer Robert Hood. On Work Vijay pays homage to his number one hero Thelonious Monk. Countdown reconsiders the classic Coltrane tune inside a rhythmic framework inspired by West African music. Mystery Woman is driven by compound pulses which owe a debt to South Indian drumming. Fast moving and quick-witted the group has developed a strong musical identity of its own with an emphasis on what Iyer calls co-constructing exploring all the dynamics of playing together. Yet the three players also get abundant solo space and in a reflective moment at the albums center Iyer plays a moving version of Billy Strayhorns Blood Count alone. Break Stuff recorded in June 2014 at New Yorks Avatar Studio and produced by Manfred Eicher is the third ECM release from Vijay Iyer. It follows the chamber music recording Mutations and the film-and-music project RADHE RADHE: Rites of Holi. Vijay Iyer will tour extensively throughout 2015 both with the Trio and in other configurations.
