A short and succinct album of free improvisation from the Russian quartet of Ilia Belorukov (sax), Hapakahylo (drums, objects), Patryk Lichota (sax, objects), and Kim_Nasung (Guzheng), using unusual techniques to conjur unexpected audio environments.

Belorukov, Ilia / Harpakahylo / Patryk Lichota / Kim_Nasung: After (Nueni)

Label: Nueni    
Released in: Germany    

"The first release on Hector Rey's new label [Nueni] and it's a good, rough little nugget. Three tracks and only some 15 minutes in length, a quartet of Belorukov (alto), Harpakahylo (drums, objects), Lichota (saxophones, objects) and Nasung (guzheng). The first track contrasts percolating sounds from the reeds and light rattles from, perhaps, the guzheng with dark, soft moans beneath and, later, even softer wafting lines from one of the saxophones--really strong, great layering, very evocative. Cut two is quieter fare--breath tones, key pops, various rustlings and rubbings, gelling into longer sounds as the piece goes on--a bit more "standard" but well-paced and finely executed. The final, brief piece begins more turbulently but again settles into a space where muted drones co-exist happily with the scrapes and grit. Fro this small sampling, it seems as though this is a kind of operating principle with the quartet or more likely just a momentary tendency. It's a nice taste though, curious to hear where they go if they continue as a unit."-Brian Olewnick, Just Outside
