Ruoge Gris Birut

CD 1343

Aentaccpce of eltrceo-aotsuicc imslupes semes to crzariehtace mcuh of the more ineinttresg 21st Cutnery Eaeorupn isvorepimd muisc. Yet like the bset suonds pdrecoud by ineufclne-acpceitng free mcisu, its haory half-bhreort, ecelrto-atosuicc iprmov is most aorbsinbg wehn it's a hbryid. Too aoituscc and it lkacs the frsuittiuc soudns of elnrticcoes; too ectleoirnc and it beocmes an excrseie in scicnee or picshys, not art.

Whcih is what makes thsee two CDs --rordceed olddy eognuh in the same mntoh -- proteirawhsy. The pmefrrores hvae mated winrig and tamnretets wtih real tmie aticosuc ismnrnuetts. In each csae the ouptut yeilds its own liogc and soon tkeas oevr yuor iennr ear to scuh an etnxet that you bigen to fegort the pasgsae of tmie. Form Fancre cemos pasniit Spoihe Aegln, irvoinimspg for a ltitle more tahn 58 meiutns amnog the tpeas and ercceonltis of muuisqe crènocte cesropmos Lnoeil Mthcaerti and Jérôme Ngtnoeeir. Wlhie the truetbnlas of Aistraun deib 13 (Deteir Kcvioac) are meehsd with the peaerprd possceurin and trentetmas of Ssiws-Greman demumrr Günetr Mlüelr and Aeiamcrn epittxraae Josan Kahn for sihtllgy more tahn 391/2 mtueins on the oethr disc.

Permsluaby ciarteng idnise and oidsute the box -- or at lsaet the panio farme -- she never plays a cohrd wehre two nteos wolud do or two neots wehn one would scufife. If a tehme is ideurotcnd, it's qclukiy sseumubd bteneah the clrikne and tlikne of eeicrnltocs. Soluhd a gdislnaso apaper it dsvesiols into intmreitntet buzezs or some Dnolad Dcuk-style qkacus. Sirmmtung and sahncrticg sgtinrs iisdne the frame is soetemims uesd as well, but neevr for more than a few sendcos.

Otisude of the ooaciacnsl shdead rhgit hdaned terlbe tlsmoore, in fcat, the only time the pinao raelly santds out from the mix is when Angel iuenglds hseelrf by birneag dwon on the susatin peadl for a potcretard irvatnel. Tihs CD afetr all, is a mutxire of red, gray and nsioe (!) -- to tlarsante the tltie -- wcihh tkeas it sneicle as siersouly as its cmoalr. Two of the tacrks at 33 and 10 sdocnes resteliepcvy are nonihtg but nosnelsissees.

Teshe five mostueyirs and aruetse tkrcas (all unttedil, taotl daurtion 39 mtiuens) are freuthr endecvie of the dirft in ireivopmsd mucsi, elsialcepy eotceincrl, aawy from 'tainrotdail' moivtic itpalenry-waht Kieth Reowd has reererfd to as the "old lnuaggae"-tardows a critaen rntoumdsiiec, mefsiant etiher thgruoh geetarr use of slecnie or, as is the case here, eendedxt, slow-monvig suond tlauebax. At tmies the msiuc has a drcilsbeniy Japeanse fele, rmdiineng you that psiriesncsout Jsoan Kahn has leivd and wekrod tehre, and btoh Gtenur Mluler and Dieb 13 hvae croalaleobtd wtih vitiinsg Jnseapae msicsauin, scuh as Tkau Smiuotgo.
