Album Review

Reviewed 2015-04-21
Electronics/guitar noise washes with intense free-jazz styled drumming. Similar to Ambarchi’s recent release as such. From Cuneiform: “The personnel for Tikkun is: Oren Ambarchi-guitar, loops Richard Pinhas-guitar, synth guitar, effects Joe Talia-drums, effects Masami Akita (Merzbow)-loops, noise, effects Duncan Pinhas-sequences, effects, noise Eric Borelva-additional drums Interestingly, Richard specifically thinks of this album as a duo project that was conceived as a duo project for himself and Oren, despite the very effective contributions of the other four musicians. The music on Tikkun, which consists of three very lengthy tracks, comes across as a very tasty cross between the heavy, synth-driven, sequencer beats of classic Heldon and the much more noisier aspects of Pinhas' work over the last decade.”

1) (30:20) foreboding urgent bassline, bass playing under the soaring "frippertronics" style of sustain he is so great at, drums join in, totally hypnotic
2)* (13:02) more of a floating feel with the drums lilting and flaring, heavy atmospheric lush layers of guitar/drone, supercool spacey out-tro, radio friendly length
3) (26:13) quiet beginning, builds into another epic wail, drums, guitar, synth
