S & S at St. Michel
Solo and duet improvisations recorded inside churches -- which adds a nice reverb effect, although it's hard to appreciate given the low recording level. |
Most of these are explorations in sound, good stuff for late-night playing. Some of the highlights include Eddie Prevost of AMM doing waves of sound on cymbals (track 8) and the sax-and-synthesizer noisefest featuring John Butcher (track 3).
1- Vocal solo, not operatic enough to be that good
2- Solo acoustic guitar, long and tiresome despite some vicious playing
3- Sax and synthesizer noise, dynamic
4- Electronics and percussion. Dark.
5- Solo violin: swooping and screeching sounds
6- Solo trombone in 3 segments (fast/slow/fast)
7- Tuba! and percussion. Laid back and quiet.
8- Cymbals and gongs. Starts near-silent but gets loud like a fierce storm
9- Electronics: dark and spacey waves
10- Church organ: Long dissonant tones, like a sine-wave whine
