Malcolm Goldstein and Rainer Wiens already have an entry in Ambiances Magnétiques’ catalog with the album Chants cachés. On this new release, Speaking in Tongues, Ganesh Anandan joins them for a trio that is truly one of a kind. These musicians combine very different backgrounds, from South Indian percussion to jazz and contemporary music. They lock into a lively conversation rich in emotions.
Ganesh, Malcolm and Rainer share a musical culture and aesthetic that is based on a love of the raw material of music: sound. They share a culture that respects traditions but acknowledges that each artist has a responsibility to create music that reflects the present–the here and now. It is a culture that respects disciplined practice so that they can follow music to areas of exuberant excess if that’s where it leads them. It is a culture that insists they speak with their own voice- the sum total of what they've lived, loved and heard. A culture that insists on ego serving music and not vice versa.
