Moor / Lehn / Butcher

Moor / Lehn / Butcher: Thermal (Unsounds)
Label: Unsounds    
Released in: The Netherlands    

"Thermal is a set of improvisations by Andy Moor, John Butcher and Thomas Lehn. Taking the sonic possibilities of their respective instruments (electric guitar, saxophones and EMS synth) through surprising and playful avenues, this is an exquisite example of the meeting of three experienced improvisers, each bringing to this exchange the perspective of their mixed musical backrounds. Andy Moor is known for his long time association with the EX, Kletka Red, and Dog Faced Hermans, he has a original vibrant style of guitar playing and in recent years has collaborated with many musicians in the improvised music scene. John Butcher is one of the most highly respected saxophone players of our time, as a solo artist he performs worldwide and is associated with musicians such as Fred Frith, Misha Mengelberg, and Derek Bailey. Thomas Lehn has an individual style of musical expression that is rooted in the experience of a broad spectrum of musical fields that encompasses contemporary classical music and new electronic improvisation. The electronic equipment he uses consists of analogue synthesizers of the late 1960s. He is associated with musicians such as Gerry Hemingway and Marcus Schmickler, Eugene Chadbourne, and Mimeo amongst many others."
