Album Review

Reviewed 2006-08-10
Flute/piano duet soundscapes. Lots of amazing sounds from the flute (Robert Dick is called the Jimi Hendrix of the instrument). The piano responds with tricks like "inside the piano" strumming. Overall atmosphere is between modern classical and abstract jazz. Great stuff, not overly cerebral.

1- Bluesy/Asian hybrid, strong and mysterious. Whispery intro; nice strong tones thereafter, with some fast duet moments
2- Quiet menacing rustle, then popping percussive sounds -- bongo drums on the flute! Then, a meditative vibe with some fast-jamming segments.
3- Stately mid/fast intro, into some fast exciting work
4- Meditative wanderings on lone flute. Spare but often fast.
5- Tunefully rumbly piano jazz, fast. Around -4:20, jazzy upbeat flute joins in.
