Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-08-29 
A nuthouse of clattery improv fun. Each track is anchored by reeds -- sax or clarinet, but also Middle Eastern types of instruments for the feel of an otherworldly bazaar. Includes lots of noisemakers: whistles, cricket sounds, and toys (note the use of "Winnie-the-Pooh" on track 3). There do appear to be overdubs but no sampling; it's all "organic" noisemaking.

1- Lots of variety. Strange and toylike, with a sparse feel. Second half has a bagpipe-like melodic quality.
2- Goofy boingy sounds. Slow, builds a bit of steam
3- Strange shimmering, like an alien bazaar. Vacuum cleaner noises are a bit too much.
4- A slow exotic procession
5- Abrasive sounds. Then, perky Renaissance Faire flute
6- Clattery. Gets busy; ends with boinging noises like Track 2
7- Midtempo but a deep, Native American sound. Less serious second half
8- Crazy five-second noise collage
