Album Review

Reviewed 2012-11-24
Experimental flute and percussion improv. Free, "spiritual" approach to the flute/percussion format; and yes that is a format. Avant intellectual stuff, this was recorded live in 2010 at the Cube Cinema in Bristol during the Singing Knives Festival with some later additions. These guys have affiliations with the Tate Modern as well. Awesome album art.

1. Found percussion toys, sharp sounds, slamming doors, and strange voice samples lay the foundation for the mostly pretty, sustained flute notes. (8:59)
*2. Continuation of sharp tones from 1 and then bizarrely tuned, bouncy snare drums are tapped, moves into more ‘traditional’ free jazz territory, followed by tribal blaring. (8:27)
3. Elephantine trunk squealing, slow pound, flute sounds like it’s playing a ballet; last few minutes are dark with ringing, weird feedback. (8:52)
