Album Review

Reviewed 2002-05-21
Abstract free improvisation with a dark, sinister sound. It sounds almost like electronics noise, but the instruments are all acoustic, with odd noises being squeezed from sax and violin, especially. All four players are pretty big names in European improv circles: Daunik Lazro (sax), Carlos "Zingaro" (violin), Joelle Leandre (bass), Paul Lovens (drums).

1- Opens dissonant and screechy for approx. 6 minutes, settling into a dark disturbing rustle. Mostly it's low-lying sinister sounds, very good, but watch for dead spots starting approx. -38:15, -16:25, and -15:00.

... The last 8 minutes are especially dark, with thunderous drums. Cool!

2- Slow-grinding industrial jazz led by sax, noisy but not really loud. It stops around -13:00 and develops a good passage of low-lying burbly noise, then resurges loudly (but briefly) after the -5:20 mark.
