Dorner, Axel / Hayward, Robin: Axel Dorner & Robin Hayward (Absinth Records)
Label: Absinth Records    
Released in: Germany    

"The duo performances by Axel Dörner and Robin Hayward just released on Marcus Liebig's Absinth label, once more in an elegant hand-stitched oversize sleeve, were recorded back in 2001, when lowercase was at its zenith (how about that for a dumb mixed metaphor). Trumpeter Dörner and tuba player Hayward are both members of the Berlin-based Phosphor collective (along with Burkhard Beins, Alessandro Bosetti, Annette Krebs, Andrea Neumann, Michael Renkel and Ignaz Schick) which released its debut album on Potlatch that year - in fact it was recorded just a week before the two untitled improvisations on this new album - and also played in a trio called rar (again, lowercase letters their idea, not mine) with Radu Malfatti. Though no recordings of that trio have ever emerged (nor did rar ever perform publicly), one imagines the music would have sounded not unlike what's on offer here: understated but far from undramatic, taking advantage of the performers' mastery of extended techniques and making significant use of silence as a structural device to articulate form. And - an important point - blurring the distinction between composition and improvisation."-Dan Warburton
