taksim number 1

The taksim is an improvisational musical utterance. The word comes from the rich lexicon of Turkish music. Though we are not experts in the world of the ajna and makam that comprise this music, yet we are deeply moved and awakened by the profoundity of this musical expression. We adopt the title “taksim” in humility and with innocence in attaching it to this impromptu composition. This recording was made by members of the idiotplayers. It is a single take recorded live at the idiotplayers studio.
