Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"To listen to Berceuses et Nocturnes, is to enter a hallucinatory night-realm animated with hypnagogic serenades and starlit reveries. The music derives its influence from Indonesian gamelan and Satie's chimerical piano works, but also the Reichian-indebted minimalism of Chicagoan post-rockers Tortoise and woozy time-warping turntablist mumble of The Caretaker. Rarefied meditations, glistening particles lingering like lullaby kisses upon the lips of the heavy-lidded, as he sows his radiant constellations, cosmic tintinnabulations ringing through obsidian night, haunting the great halls of sleep."-Shhpuma

Also available on Compact Disc.

Boa Tarde [VINYL]
(Shhpuma)
Two guitarists with unique approaches to their instruments -- Paris-based Julen Depsrez and Lisbon-based Luis Lopes -- in an experimental album of evolving sound through extreme modification of guitar sound and sustain, mysteriously building their interactions from whispering sonics to growling harmonics, tightly controlled but bristling with complex energy.
Holy Mountain, The
Toad Of Light [VINYL]

The Toronto-based duo of Colin Fisher on woodwinds and percussion and Carl Didur on keyboards and bass bridge acoustic and electronic improv with science fiction sensibilities in their two part "Exegesis", a critical exposition of un-genred music that borrows from global sources in service to their unusual and exotic tale; a wonderfully perplexing album.
