Album Review
DJ Aporia
Reviewed 2016-11-02 
Gloomy, pulsing “post-jazz experimental.” Sax/violin/pedal steel + drone. From Constellation Records: “Taking its title(s) from Robert Creeley’s poem ‘The Heart’, A Boat Upon Its Blood deploys the human metronome of amplified pulse as a recurring undercurrent, with compositions that incorporate electro-acoustic and musique concrète strategies, drone, noise, electronics, methodical dissonance, tone poem, layered rhythmic and melodic figures, and improvisation.”

1. (5:34) *** A Boat Upon Its Blood, Pt. 1—Fluttering strings, cavernous bassy drones, the human heart brimming with life
2. (7:13) A Boat Upon Its Blood, Pt. 2—Dissonant sax and violin in a twisted funeral march
3. (5:28) **** A Boat Upon Its Blood, Pt. 3—Rustling dissonance belies a peaceful drone, two minutes in we get a pounding beat and skittering synths, ends in pure insanity
4. (3:02) In the Construction of the Chest, There is a Heart—Hissing glitching noise
5. (3:48) ** A Blast at Best—Noisy free jazz
6. (8:24) *** Still I Sit, With You Inside Me, Pt. 1—Soft, cosmic strings and a tense heartbeat. Sounds of water added in last few minutes
7. (4:33) ** Still I Sit, With You Inside Me, Pt. 2—Violin and pedal steel drown into noisy synths, drum machine, ends dissonant
