Goldstein, Malcolm / John Heward / Rainer Wiens: Chants caches (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

"These three musicians have played together often and it shows. There is a real complicity at work in this free music, a friendship beneath this sonic alchemy. A complete symbiosis between the three musicians improvising rigorous and authentic free, moulding sound not only in its discursive, linguistic, and conversational elements but also in the very core of its matter. These are not three soloists exhibiting their speed or their technical know-how. On the contrary, this dense and expressionist music is collective above all else, radical, demanding both for the musicians and the audience. Music about giving in which everyone must contribute something."-Raymond Gervais"-Ambiances Magnetique

"John Heward is a Montreal-based visual artist and one of the world's leading percussionist working in the field of contemporary music and avant jazz. Untitled and undated, Heward's recto-verso drawings can be hung on walls, placed on floors or suspended from ceilings. The objectivity is emphasized by the subjectivity of placement, intention and chance in a continuing of space/time. His work is seductively ambiguous in its imagery, often calligraphic in its markings and use of cultural forms, and resistant to definitive interpretation."

-Paul Kuhn Gallery (
