sample the album:
Two extended improvisations using a mix of acoustic and electric instruments from the sextet of Ernesto Rodrigues, d'incise, Cyril Bondi, Abdul Moiemem, Eduardo Chagas, and Nuno Torres. The sets build with a fascinating set of textures, the orchestration fascinatingly diverse with saxophone, viola, trombone, prepared guitar, laptop, cymbals, drums and objects. The group keeps the interplay in control, never falling prey to chaotic interchange, instead listening closely and moving as a group from one section to the next. The results remind of bands like Bruire, effectively mixing acoustic and electronics to create darkly complex sound worlds. It's a bit like passing through a forest at night, intently listening for danger, and marveling at the beautiful peril you find yourself in.

• Show Bio for d incise
"Laurent PETER, a.k.a. d'incise (Geneva, 1983), drifting musician, grew up inbetween dub sound system and experimental electronic music. Sound explorer, he has no perticular instrument, using whatever can be considered as such, softwares, recordings, objects, percussions, harmonium, etc. He's interested in radicalism, reductionnism, repetitions and conceptual approaches, building specific set-up for each new occasion, in improvised or composed context. He tends to extract the most tiny details of the elements, appreciates slowness and obsessive explorations of simple processes. He's, since many years with Cyril Bondi, behind the INSUB. label, orchetra, the Diatribes duo, and many other things, and does graphic designs."-d'incise Website (http://www.dincise.net/bio.html)
