Three extended improvisations documenting the first meeting of an exciting and unexpected electro-acoustic quartet with a unique sound and instrumentation.

Eastley / Halliwell / Parker / Wastell
a life saved by a spider and two doves

Eastley / Halliwell / Parker / Wastell: a life saved by a spider and two doves (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: UK    

"Three extended improvisations by an unexpected quartet of musicians, crossing different generations and different playing styles. A shimmering, weightless music of unusual timbres, featuring Evan Parker as you've never heard him before and the welcome return of Max Eastley and his self-built 'arc' to a group-playing situation. Graham Halliwell deftly employs a combination of field recordings and live sampling, while Mark Wastell offers subtle support on tam-tam, Japanese bowls and Indian harmonium. The recordings in a church in north London document the first meeting of this quartet in September 2007, though they have continued to work as a group since. A beautiful and fascinating combination."-Another Timbre
