Recording in Seoul, South Korea at Mullae Arts Village in 2016, the duo of Australian drummer/percussionist Will Guthrie and improvising noise artist Hong Chulki release 8 pieces with concise works under 1 minute to larger improvisations up to 8 minutes, contrasting interesting rhythms with indescribable electronics, found sounds, and unusual environments. The pacing is enticing, rhythmic sections offset by environmental work, Guthrie using percussive elements sparingly to enhance those environments. Language in Korean and English impart a pan-global feeling, words subsumed to muffling sounds and then to strange manifestations of alien origin that could well be insect- or crab-derived. It's the skill and discretion of these veteran ea-improvisers that keeps the listener interested, never letting the sound spiral chaotically, and always returning to thought-provoking moments. Really fine work.
