Sonic Youth & I.C.P. & The Ex: In the Fishtank 9 (Fishtank)
Label: Fishtank    
Released in: The Netherlands    

The ninth volume of the "In The Fishtank" series that pairs up artists and gives them a limited amount of time to produce some type of collaborative soundwaves.

In June 2001 Sonic Youth played the Holland Festival as part of their "Goodbye 20th Century" tour. The band (augmented with Jim O'Rourke but minus Kim) teamed up with members of The Ex and I.C.P. (Instant Composers Pool), recording in the studio these 8 tracks of wild freeform creation featuring no fewer than 10 participants (Thurston, Lee, Steve, Jim, and William Winant from Sonic Youth, Wolter Wierbos, Ab Baars, and Han Bennink of I.C.P., and Terrie & Luc Ex).

The pieces are delicate, abstract & elusive miniatures that fit in the jazz tradition rather than pop music, based on sounds, instant composing & fantasy, as if the music went out on a stroll without a specific direction, open for surprises & unexpected turns.
