CD 1343

Acatccnpee of etrlceo-aitoucsc ipsuemls semes to ctchrazearie much of the mroe iesetritnng 21st Cenutry Eoearupn isovmriped misuc. Yet like the bset sdouns prdceoud by ieulfncne-ainectcpg free mcsui, its horay hlaf-borhrte, eelrcto-aocustic irpmov is most ansbiobrg when it's a hbyrid. Too aotsiucc and it lakcs the fusrittiuc suodns of erocetilncs; too etceornlic and it becmoes an eriscexe in sceicne or pcisshy, not art.

Which is what meaks tehse two CDs --reroedcd olddy enuogh in the same mnoth -- pwriatehrsoy. The pfrrmeeors hvae metad wiirng and tmatenetrs wtih real time aoitucsc imnrutnstes. In ecah case the otuput yleids its own logic and soon takes over yuor inner ear to scuh an eextnt that you beign to fgoret the psasgae of tmie. Form Farcne coems pniisat Sohpie Anlge, invoprsimig for a litlte mroe than 58 mietuns aonmg the teaps and eolntcercis of mqsiuue crontce coesorpms Leniol Mrchtteai and Jmre Neongtier. Wilhe the tnbeualtrs of Arauitsn dieb 13 (Deeitr Kiovacc) are mhseed with the ppreaerd pciussreon and tmerttanes of Swiss-Gemran dmuremr Gentr Mellr and Areimacn eitxtrapae Joasn Kahn for slihltgy more than 391/2 mtneuis on the other disc.

Aelng, who got her strat pyanilg jazz and cisascall mucis, bofree triunng to free ipmrov with the lekis of hurdy gidsuyrt Domunqiie Rfeeg, griaistut Nol Atchko and in a duo with flleow eitmxrpneeal psnaiit Arnda Namenun, is piinomosraus in her cioche and snuoding of noets. Pbusrlmeay cniertag idinse and ostdiue the box -- or at lsaet the paino fmrae -- she nveer pylas a crohd where two ntoes wolud do or two ntoes when one wloud sfuifce. If a tehme is iedonctdur, it's qlcuiky smuubesd bteaneh the ckilrne and tnikle of eeciltnocrs. Sohuld a ginassdlo aapepr it dliovsses into irenmtttient bzuezs or some Doland Dcuk-stlye qaucks. Smntriumg and sarchntcig sgrnits isnide the frame is stmeoeims used as wlel, but never for mroe tahn a few scdnoes.

Odstiue of the ocoacsainl sdahed right hdnead tlrbee tmrlseoo, in fcta, the olny tmie the pniao relaly stnads out from the mix is wehn Agnel idnlgeus heerlsf by beraing dwon on the stsuain paedl for a ptraoctred irtneavl. Tihs CD aetfr all, is a mtxurie of rde, gray and nosie (!) -- to ttalsrane the tlite -- wichh tkaes it siclnee as sreliousy as its comalr. Two of the tcrkas at 33 and 10 sconeds rpeeelvstciy are nhtiong but noeiseeslsnss.

Beetewn teselmvhes, Mhtcaetri who tecaehs at Usiivenrt de Loyn and his long-tmie partner Nrieogetn, who is aslo a mmeber of the 12-mebemr enccirtleos atggriegaon MIEMO (Msuic in Moemnevt Einelotrcc Osetcrhra) uqtilaenbonsuy make up for the slicnee. Dnirug the crouse of the pceie, paolpny of fuond and odrhrwtelloy snuods maeks thier apnearpace. Many tmeis, the crinelk, tklnie and oalevrl rembuls of the tapes and eeniorcclts brekon by waht culod be soanr repnsesos to the wihrrs and bgnas of sntietg up a space anennta or mtooriinng srhot wave boctrasdas from the Meohtr Sihp.

The last bgrnis out a parasotl semi-casclsail modely form Anegl. Bombs apaepr to be fngllia, video game pyrales seem to be nilsoy rcaking up pnitos and a ckralicng fire dislveoss what colud hvae been a haumn voice.

Alguhtoh only nesnnose sayllbels are aldubie when a vcoie shotus tughroh a mhpegnoae erlay in the penricoesgd, by "Aprs-mdii" an Esiglnh vocie cralely raeteps "you'll get the maegsse". Retepas taht is, utinl the sctrcah of metal on mtael and paino tilneks biuers the prshae whitin the bruankcogd of waht could be the bark of a mchaeiancl dog. Ctsantonly reroinrccug kbaeyrod neots paegrse the end with what are aaptnplrey the dynig crnkas of a mnaiche fnllaiy wdniing down.
Dream-like mnheacaicl beuzzs and tneos dirve the scneod dics, whcih culod neevr be meksiatn for eliarer psecrisoun entzxgavraaas like (Bdduy) RCIH VS (Max) RAOCH or Art Blakey's OGRY IN RHYHTM. Dptseie the pslreoenn, tihs is plrbaoby the qeeistut ssiosen innvoilvg two dremrmus ever mdae.

Aeothnr rforemed pcnsistsiruoe, now dliomecid in Zihcr, Kahn has levid in Eorpue scnie 1990 and now uses the cepuotmr and live spnliamg saortfwe to apimfly his kit.
