Tom & Gerry (Thomas Lehn & Gerry Hemingway)

Tom & Gerry (Thomas Lehn & Gerry Hemingway): Kinetics (Auricle)
Label: Auricle    
Released in: USA    

"kinetics is the third release of Tom & Gerry (also on Auricle records, AUR-8), the other ongoing duo of myself and Thomas Lehn. These performances come from Ulrichsberg, Austria; Köln, Germany and the Densités festival in Fresnes-en-Woëvre, France. Thomas recorded these performances multitrack with his excellent equipment and so the quality of the recording is very high. Additionally we also worked collaboratively mixing and editing these recordings, a process that takes months and engages us in a very detailed discussion of converting these performances into an audio experience. The result, in this case, has produced a recording that for the first 45 minutes is primarily very quiet and delicate. The listening experience is rich in detail, sounding fantastic on very good headphones or turned up loud on a quality sound system. The final 15 minutes, assuming you dont turn it down, is one of the more explosive, earth moving and viscerally intense expositions of extremely dense and loud material we have offered so far in recordings. I particularly find this performance to maintain an exceptional state of tension, both in the quiet and loud sections. Not for the casual listener!! Thomas and I are almost done with a second cd that will come from four different performance venues in the US."-Gerry Hemingway website
