descriptions, reviews, &c.

Three strings, percussion and electronics from the quartet of Phillip Wachsmann on violin, electronics, Trevor Taylor on percussion, electronics, Marcio Mattos on bass, cello, electronics, and Ian Brighton on electric guitar, which grew out of the 2016 return of guitarist Ian Brighton and his String Thing, released on FMR as "Reunion: Live From Cafe Oto". The eight improvisations on this album are generally introspective and informed, sometimes pointillistic and energetic, but maintaining a steadiness and control that only such well-seasoned improvisers can present.
