Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-03-02 
A quartet of strings (violin, violin, cello, bass) plus Golia on flute/clarinet, in pieces bordering between classical music and Golia's home base of free jazz.

Don't expect Bach or Brahms here -- modern elements abound, such as improvised segments and just-plain-weird compositions. There's lots of jazz-like soloing even from the strings (see #1), and Golia and the strings do lots of "extended" technique, the squeaky/squawky sounds you hear on free improv sessions.

Nice stuff, more uptempo and free-jazzy than you'd expect looking at the cover (which is very black and cerebral-looking).

1*- Spritely midtempo
2*- Slow, with lots of exciting exteneded play on flutes
3- Abstract; gets fast and swoopy
4- Slow and melancholy
5*- Disjoint chaos, w/ smooth cello/bass duet
6- Slower, with flute
7- Fast, sweeping
8*- Stern, strong; some wild soloing
9- Fast, exciting, with cool bass clarinet.
10- Abrasive, buzzy, noisy. cool!
