Solo man Gabriel Saloman (ex-Yellow Swans) to release Movement Building Vol. 1 on Shelter Press

Gabriel Salomon, who was totally the Teller in the seminal Penn and Teller-inspired noise band Yellow Swans (Think about it, man.), will release Movement Building Vol. 1 next month via French experimental label Shelter Press. The LP is the first in a series that showcases Salomon’s choreography-inspired compositions, which have steadily embraced the use of piano and strings over the years. No need to worry though; Yellow Swans fans that have kept pace with Salomon over the years know this man can still bastardize tranquility like no other.

Movement Building Vol. 1 consists of a single track called “The Disciplined Body,” a 34-minute tightrope walk of composure and disorder stretched across both sides of the album. The track was composed with Daisy Karen Thompson’s “Re-Marks on Source Material” in mind. Saloman plans to follow Movement Building Vol. 1 with a second LP in the near future, followed by a CD set of both compositions, which will certainly be heard in the boomboxes of dancing buskers all over NYC.

In fact, why wait? Stream an excerpt from the album below; do yourself a favor and watch this video on mute while you listen.
