When Water Burns Air
For fans of Lasse Marhaug's noisy, crunchy electronics albums that went through A-file recently.... here he is in a tough-fisted jazz context:|
Abrasive electronics join sax and drums for an interesting free-jazz trio, featuring Chicago kingpin Ken Vandermark on the sax. The electronics are particularly aggressive -- not little bleeps and squeaks, but loud, sandpapery scrapes. It's sometimes like the sound of a fire blazing (see #4), which might be where the band name comes from. Vandermark plays hard most of the time, for an overall aggressive, blazing session.
Paul Nilssen-Love (drums)
Ken Vandermark (tenor/baritone saxes)
Lasse Marhaug (electronics)
1- A psych-sounding loop, buzzy. Into a hot-tempo sax solo.
2- Lots of blank space. It's spare, not necessarily quiet. Some squirrelly sax peppers the final minutes, but it's still played as if in a gaping, still space.
3- Bouncy, quickly gets into a fast sax/drums duet.
4- Slow-moving. Starts quiet; gets louder but with slowish, soft notes over wheezy electronics sounds. Ends with an electronics "solo" resembling a burning building.
5- Stacatto clutter and a burly, abrasive sax. A tough, macho mood.
6- Quick jabbing sax and drums; hovering electronic twiddles. Fairly fast.
7- Patient, hovering start (but still fairly aggressive). Explodes in the last few minutes.
