The trio of Tomas Korber on guitar & electronics, Christian Weber on double bass, and Christian Wolfarth on drums and percussion, unique electroacoustic improv recorded in the studio in Zurich, Switzerland.


Mersault: Mersault (Quakebasket)
Label: Quakebasket    
Released in: USA    

"One can perceive a fantastic connection of intents between these three fine sonic geologists, a common scope that results in one of the best electroacoustic fusions that have graced my ears in 2006. The accurate choice of the right moment in which an element must be released, the keen sensitiveness of ears and fingers capturing invisible signals to reproduce them in combinations that are extremely palatable in their timbrall uniqueness: these are just a couple among the various reasons of "Mersault"'s high value. Not to mention the sheer beauty of the single sources: Korber's guitar-cum-electronics travel paths of subterranean burrows and Tuvan throat singing - just listen to the beginning of the third movement to understand what I'm saying. Wolfarth's hands modify his percussive gathering like a sculptor does with raw clay. Weber approaches his double bass as a faithful kneeling in front of an icon, getting sounds of decomposing substances and falling helicopters as a reward. There's a serious chance that this album will become a milestone after just two or three intensive listening sessions."-Massimo Ricci!
