Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2002-05-15 
Jazz-influenced improv session that strives for a "prehistoric" sound, the thesis being: If art mirrors culture, then what did music sound like before there was culture? The real answer is that it was a lot of screaming and rock-banging, but this CD goes for a bit more depth: It has sax, bass and turntables in addition to drums.

So it sounds like a lot of acoustic free improv does, but the prehistoric theme shows up nicely in a few tracks (3, 6, 8).

1- Big slow swell, lots of cymbals
2- Lonely sax, almost jazzy
3- A steady but very slow beat. Kind of fun.
4- Midtempo heavy beat, sax roar
5- Jazzy drums, quiet ending
6- Slow thunder; noisy
7- Sparse but interesting
8- Shaman vocal; ominous scrape; lots of drama
10- Buzzy noise
11- Spastic, loud
12- Quiet, playful
13- Distant whisper
14- Fun midtempo stomp
15- Jazzy exploration
