Strange and noisy stuff, great if you're looking for a chaotic drone or spooky noise feel.|
Abstract improvisation with a dark and primitive feel. Many tracks are long rumbles of sound. Led by screechy violin -- an avant-garde sound-exploration mode -- and "prepared" guitar that pecks out chunky metallic sounds or provides grumbly background (sort of Henry Kaiser/Fred Frith territory). A wide variety of percussion including bells (7) and Indian tabla-like drumming (3).
1*- Violin over drum-circle rhythm. Becomes a healthy jam.
2*- Low rumble, then fast loud chaos
3- Slow insistant waves, led by screechy violin, with cool hand percussion
4- Darkly noisy, almost industrial
5- Growly sax monologue, slow and warbly. A primitive tribal cry.
6*- Fast and low; starts quiet
7- Loose bells; melodically clangy and fast
8- Ghostly quiet violin
