"The Uliben Duo's CD Shared Memory (Creative Sources CS 327 CD) more accurately describe the performance of French bassist Benoit Cancoin facing the live processing of German Ulrich Phillipp. In other circumstances Phillips also plays bass, so his electronic impulses are informed by that knowledge. Throughout he stretches the processing function so that it not only accompanies, but also enhances the double bass's tonal qualities. More than replicating Cancoin's initial sounds, Phillipp's often tandem, frequently wriggling, textures extend the bull fiddle's range, directing acoustically sourced sounds to unforeseen places. While there are instances of skyrocketing sound eruptions and multiplied string drones pm the tracks surrounding "Joint Repository", this over 40 minute improv gives the players ample space to define and perfect their hook up. Like stars floating in a night sky that illuminate at junctures, different sequences are prominent in stages. Languidly expressed, bowedresonations and bottle-top-like pops from the higher-pitched strings solidify into an electric shaver-like buzz via Phillipp's electronics, with Cancoin interjecting sporadic mandolin-like plucks. By mid-point however, an euphonious bassoon-tempered tone predominates, until split into separate streams of: sprawling, spiccato thrusts from the bass and an assembly line of crackles and drones from the electronics. Before individual improvisations dribble away into irreconcilable solipsism, the program speeds up to sound like two double basses, courtesy of Phillipp's machine-processed memory. As brief interludes where graininess reveal one tone's electronic origins and Cancoin's acoustic pulls. the "humanness" of the other, strands finally unite. The finale finds the two fading into a single sonic source like the fused profiles at the climaxes of the films Persona. Used judiciously with respect from both sides of the acoustic-electric divide, processing can create memorable discs ofunanticipated sophistication like these sets."-Ken Waxman, JazzWord
