sample the album:
"[...] Listening at a slight remove, the music is a mass of meshed colours and textures, some bright and bold, some aggressive, out to grab our attention, and others seemingly there just to hold it all together, to stop the fragile structure from falling apart. In good improvised music every sound has a purpose, nothing is thrown away, and within the music on this album each sound is where it is because a skilled musician placed it there. However the music cannot be without an element of chance. A brightly coloured thread placed by one musician cannot know that it will not suddenly meet a deep, thick black twine laid down by another, or a mass of thin sinews from a third. The sounds on this beautiful album wrap together in the moment. As no architect could plan the course of each thread in a bundle of wool, no composer could notate music this alive. The only question remaining for the listener is whether to view the musicas a while or try and tug at the individual threads to see hows much unravels."-Richard Pinnel, from the liner notes
