Tammen, Hans / Irmer, Christop: Oxide (Creative Sources)
Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    

"Just what an 'endangered guitar' is, here played by Hans Tammen, I don't know. Maybe a guitar played with objects? It surely sounds like that. Irmer plays 'just' violin, not endangered. These six improvised pieces were all recorded in one go, in 2005, are here the thematic approach seems to be: play as many nervous notes you can, in a short time span. Hectic, chaotic, this reminded me of the two first LPs by Agencement. Most of the time it's all fairly straight forward acoustic playing that is going on here, but in 'Disobey', there is all of a sudden electronic sound effects to be heard. 'Rare Metal', the final piece brings some contemplation to the pieces. Quite a nice release. "-Frans de Waard /Vital Weekly
