descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Rake-Star nails the Ra mantra-approach with their huge sound. The band is heavy on the bottom end and the reeds suggest floating in a zone removed from earth's gravitational pull. Even though the listener can't see the dancer, this live recording is reminiscent of a Sun Ra performance filled with theatrical and musical spectacle.

Replication is an artistic no-no when playing the compositions of departed masters. The key is to invigorate the music with integrity. Rake-star demonstrate that they can take the music of a shining star like Sun Ra, apply their own artistic acumen, and come up with...aesthetically high caliber music."-Laurence Svirchev, Coda


Artist Biographies:

"Pierre-Yves Martel. Born Vanier, Ontario, Canada, 1979. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (viola da gamba, double bass, objects)

Following a unique artistic path, Pierre-Yves Martel is constantly renewing his musical identity and practice. Though a instrumentalist, he identifies himself first and foremost as a sound artist whose work oscillates between perpetual research and experimentation. It is in this spirit that he has revisited the viola da gamba, utilizing this traditional instrument in new contexts and thus reengaging it with the contemporary world. Having created an authentic musical language through non-conventional techniques and instrumental preparations, he also works outside of instrumental music altogether, using a variety of objects rife with new sonic possibilities, from contact-mics and speakers to motors, wheels, surfaces and textures."
