Hideki, Kato; Mori, Ikue; Frith, Fred: Death Ambient (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

Kato Hideki: bass
Ikue Mori: drum machines
Fred Frith: guitar

Death Ambient teams three of the world's most exciting improvisers in a fascinating album that blurs styles and smashes genres in a dark world of unusual sounds and unorthodox techniques.
The talented young bassist Kato Hideki has performed in a variety of rock and improvisational groups - he was an original member of Ground Zero, has recorded with his own group Bass Army on Trigram, and is a frequent collaborator with Tenko, Haino Keiji and Zeena Parkins among others.
Ikue Mori has developed a personal and innovative technique of playing samplers triggered by adapted drum machines. A member of the legendary No-Wave trio DNA (with Arto Lindsay), in recent years Mori has recorded with Death Praxis (with Tenko), Vibraslaps (with Catherine Jauniaux), Ursa's Door (with Zeena Parkins) and many others. 1995 has been a busy year for Mori, with the releases of Painted Desert (with Marc Ribot and Robert Quine) on Avant and Hex Kitchen on Tzadik.
Fred Frith is one of the most important and influential guitarists in rock and improvisational music of the past three decades. A founder of Henry Cow and the Art Bears in the early '70s, a member of Skeleton Crew, Curlew, Cassiber, Aksak Maboul, Massacre, Material, the Golden Palominos, French Frith Kaiser & Thompson and Naked City, Frith has recorded with the Residents, collaborated with Henry Kaiser, John Zorn, Rene Lussier, Derek Bailey, Ferdinand Richard and Chris Cutler, and recorded numerous solo albums on ESD, SST, Ralph, Rift, Incus, Recommended, Rec Rec, Victo, Crammed Discs and Sub Rosa. Frith was the subject of the acclaimed documentary film, Step Across The Border.
