Complete your Jon Hassell collection. AKA/DARBARI/JAVA is a proposal for a "coffee-colored" classical music of the future - both in terms of the adoption of entirely new modes of structural organisation and in terms of the expansion of the "allowable" musical vocabulary in which one may speak. this structure - leaving behind the ascetic face which Eurocentric tradition has come to associate with serious expression.

Jon Hassell (born March 22, 1937) is an American trumpet player and composer active since the 1960s. He is best known for developing the musical concept known as "Fourth World," which unifies ideas from minimalism, various world music sources, and his electronic manipulation of the trumpet.

MAGIC REALISM, Like the video technique of "keying in" where any background may be electronically inserted or deleted independently of foreground, the ability to bring the actual sound of musics of various epochs and geographical origins all together in the same compositional frame marks a unique point in history.

Hassell unveiled the concept on his debut album, Vernal Equinox, in 1978. The name Fourth World came two years later, on Hassell’s first collaboration with Brian Eno, Fourth World Vol. 1: Possible Musics. Parting company with Eno – temporarily as it turned out – Hassell co-produced Magic Realism with Daniel Lanois, who had engineered Dream Theory. Hassell’s liner notes describe the new album as the blueprint for a coffee-coloured classical music of the future, in which the allowable musical vocabulary is expanded to include influences from beyond the European tradition, creating serious music with transcultural appeal and a smile – a precise definition of Fourth World.

Sort: Recent best-seller Results cached. JON HASSELL - Aka-darbari-java, Magic Realism - CD - Excellent Condition. 11 days I'm grateful that Jon Hassell was added to this site. I've been a fan of his since his Eno collaborations. This album is very much in the same style of the Fourth World series, with Hassell's computer treated trumpet playing over synth loops and Abdou Mboup's tuned drums. The whole album is at once eerie, disturbing, and strangely soothing. The treated sound on the trumpet is mostly a lush harmonized sound, that gives it a moaning quality, like a distant train. Much of the tape loops are sampled sounds from an old Hollywood orchestration.
