Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-09-14
1- Dark gloomy piano. Then stretches of subtle sounds (a low hum for a while) with quiet percussion atop: bells, then drum kit
2- Off-key guitar. Builds into almost a rhythm; last couple minutes quiet down. SEGUES into:
3- Ominous and slow. Some light chimes and staticky sounds
4- Delicate, melodic piano: slow and deep.

5- A 27-minute suite. Near-silent start into a droney buzz/hum for about 7 minutes. Drums arrive with a slow, steady beat. Then everything shifts into a new, pattering drum phase for about three minutes.

For the final 12 minutes: Shifts into disjoint improv including subtle guitar. Gets very quiet; there are some clattery segments but it's overall sparse and even includes false-start applause around -4:00. Ends with an eerie, spare riff on guitar accompanied by bursts of cymbals.
