sample the album:
"Chick Lyall and David Garrett have worked together as improvisers since the 70's. At that time they had only the most primitive and paltry means at their disposal, an out of tune piano, various sound objects used as percussion and a range of household implements to create a ragbag of sonorities This new CD (their 3rd for FMR) contains wonderful but precarious balance between pre-prepared material, sequenced segments, lyrical piano interludes and minimalist debuted riffs in a shifting combination of electronic and acoustic instruments.
