POETRY?? EIN WURFELWURF [FMRCD550]

This new release by Berlin based Multi instrumentalist Duo Schindler features him playing here in a duo here with drummer percussionist Eric Vwang Ericksson Speaking about it Udo Schindler says, 'This is my first recording in a duo with a drummer, which is a new challenge and allows a more open playing style. The rhythmic elements come to the fore. The quest of my 80th salon was the local Eric Zwang Ericksson, whom I have know for decades, but had previously never played with. A operation was addressed in the nineties, but was not realised. All the more surprising and enjoyable is the result of our common interaction. The sensitive spatial arrangement of the actors in the audio sound image by Obrecht adds an important quality to the concert document and enhance its impact'

SLIPSLIDING [FMRCD559]

Slip sliding takes the listener on a musical ride aiming to evoke emotions and discussion about what is good, bad different, indifferent, familiar, unfamiliar, beauty and the unexplainable. This experimental project includes compositions by Rob Burke and the group improvisations that are intensely expressive. The music traverses compositions and improvisation with an underling investigation in to distortion. 'Check out' Ben Monder's use of varied and dense distortion and how Rob Burke interacts with his manipulation of harmonics in the sound ideas that are infused with the unique creativity of Tom Rainey. The distortion is further manifested with the post -editing of Ben Grayson: adding sounds and changing the sound scape of many of the tracks.
