Charbin / Van Isacker: kryscraft (Creative Sources)
Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    


"It seems the listening space gradually takes on a dark grey hue in the first track, where tonal tumbles on keys of Marjolaine Charbin's prepared piano, broken by sudden piercing musical syllabes and high-pitched stridor by Frans Van Isacker's alto saxophone and violent hysterical outbreaks on piano as well as pauses where silence seems to be violated by sibilating sonic veils, till the moment when all voices sound like getting dumb and swallowed up by a bubble of silence. The listening experience these Belgian improvisational musicians build looks like centered on tenuous modulations of noises, which are close to the threshold of imperceptibility just like a stifled emotions whose repression can turn it in a deafening shriek, which manage to talk to the listener and stimulating its imagination through intriguing and somewhat disquieting gauges of asphyxiating noises, sounds and silences in plaster. Some recordings seem to mirror and report a kind of sleep disorder as suggested by some sonic clues, such as the confused nightmare evoked by piano dissonance and a breathe close to the one of a strong snoring in the fourth track or the squeaking not so dissimilar from the one made by some rusty links of a bed base in the third track. Even if it sometimes could sound too odd and clumsy, Kryscraft includes many really immersive and interesting cues."-Vito Camarretta (Chain DLK)
