Fantastical melding of indian tabla, slow phrased mournful sax, and weird electronic noise. Often the former two are filtered through the latter. Instrumental, this is strange and hypnotic stuff, subtly noisey, world and jazz altogether. The stuff of dreams. Like John Hassel meets Third Eye Foundation with Ravi Shankar. Haas is a former member of 80's new wave band Martha and the Muffins but has since experimented with sax and noise, collaborating with the likes of John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Thurston Moore, God Is My Copilot, Keiji Haino, and Fred Frith. Thats a pretty high falutin crowd.|
1)* (5:03) tabla with distant sax all treated through a noisey electronic filter of some sort, excellent. 2) (5:23) more upbeat, this one has a tribal rhythmic flare with the tabla and the synth is weirder 3)* (4:36) a faster feel to the synth rhythm, noise gets low end, sax remains slow phrased. 4) (5:28) synths swirl, the rhythm is consistent. 5) (4:12) this feels more in your face, the electronics are brighter. 6) (4:44) noisier, less rhythmic. 7) (7:14) upbeat, rhythmic, mildly melodic in the sax. 8) (4:15) synth resonates, gets strange. 9) (1:35) brief, pensive weird electronics in this one, excellent.
