Ramanan, Roland: Caesura (Emanem)
Label: Emanem    
Released in: Great Britain    

"A Caesura is a musical/poetical term denoting a pause, break or cut. This title (and the titles of some of the tracks) refer to events in my life which partly explain why it has taken so long to release this CD.

CAESURA represents a development of the improvisation/ composition themes of my previous album and is I think, more integrated and musically successful. Which is code for: I felt more confident this time and the music is better."-Roland Ramanan (2005)

"Caesura is indeed an extremely mature statement; some of the material is composed while the large part of it is improvised, freely or upon pre-determined instructions. Every movement sounds perfectly accomplished, with Ramanan playing with intelligence and huge soul, Sanders being his usual wonderful self - namely one of the most sensible percussionists that I've ever heard - and the fantastic pairing of Mattos' cello and Fell's double bass representing a concentrated affirmation of technical ability and spontaneous combustion, well evident in their engrossing duo on Post Part. One of those recordings which give back some hope for the future of contemporary music."-Massimo Ricci - Touching Extremes 2006
