An unusual and absorbing record of percussion and electronic improvisation from bassist and tape machine manipulator Chris Tarry and Vancouver drummer and samplist Dylan van der Schyff.

Tarry, Chris / Dylan van der Schyff

Tarry, Chris / Dylan van der Schyff: Sponge (Spool)
Label: Spool    
Released in: Canada    

"From a nether corner of the ambient world comes Sponge, a largely improvised and very eclectic take on the subject. The duet has conjured up a visceral sea of sound and imagination which is sometimes calming, sometimes disturbing, sometimes both at the same time. Don't mistake Sponge for another hypnotic, into-the-void wallpaper music CD. Sponge is too emphatic and embodies a greater musical presence than most ambient releases, largely owing to van der Schyff's deep background in improvised and new musics and to Tarry's multifaceted experience across the musical spectrum. 24 minutes of live improvised electronics."-Spool
