English – Joe Foster & Bonnie Jones

CDR Releases, English (Joe Foster, trumpet and electronics, Bonnie Jones, electronics), Copula, Seoul, 2004. 

Bonnie Jones and Joe Foster met in South Korea in 2003 where they formed the improvised electroacoustic music duo English, named after the fact that they had both studied poetry and literature in undergraduate school and were also teaching English in Korea.

“At times, I felt that Foster and Jones had taken Voice Crack’s instrumentation (“cracked” everyday electronics) literally, and wanted to break the instruments, break the tools, break the sound itself, and then fashion the pieces together again in some arch and inscrutable dialogue.”

— Jason Bivins, Dusted, “English”
