sample the album:
Trippy and granular improvisations in search of a balance between delicate noise-making and collective drive from this mix of Montreal Actuelle improvisers, including Remi LeClerc of Miriodor. The tracks are short and focused, and the sequencing of the performances add depth and a sense of journey to the album as a whole. Starting with a dark and complex sonic tapestry, the pieces build to a wonderfully controlled chaos, all the while presenting superb solo opportunities for each player. A great example of building cathartic improvisation using modern electronic instrumentation.
