2004 release of Lisbon double bassist Margarida Garcia on electric double bass, and electronic artist Barry Weisblat in a startling dialog of electronic burst and deep tones.

Garcia, Margarida / Barry Weisblat

Garcia, Margarida / Barry Weisblat: Loran (Quakebasket)
Label: Quakebasket    
Released in: USA    

"Garcia is a diminuitive thinking bassist and one of the central cogs in Lisbon's increasingly vociferous New Music scene, while Weisblat is best know for his sub-radar activities with percussionist Tim Barnes and zoned cultists The Tower Recordings. Weisblat's approach is always extremely hermetic. Live, it's often difficult to work out what he's actually doing ot wether he's even doing anything at all. Here the diffculty lies more in working out who is doing what, as various slithers, lonesome codes, digital bursts and assorted domestic electronic activity combine in a subtly vibrating electroacoustic assemblage.

At points it sounds as if Garcia is slowly feeding the strings of her bass through a tinyshredding machine while Weisblat bobs for his mobile phone in a vat of quick setting jelly - and it's kind of massive sound/event dislocation that makes for a particularly hallucinatory ride."-David Keenan, The Wire
