Oren Ambarchi - guit, elec / Günter Müller - sel perc, mds, ipod, elec, Philip Samartzis - elec, environmental sound, recorded at 'What Is Music?' Corner Hotel Melbourne 2002, and at home in Sydney, Itingen, Melbourne 2003, cover artwork by Günter Müller. "The pieces thankfully don't follow any predictable dramatic arc: they don't just rise and fall, but are continually working at the tension between these two movements, creating ruptures amid any smooth surfaces previously generated or framing the most fractious moments (for example those using the found sounds and field recordings on "Warmer") with a delicate lamination. Likewise the textural blends are never simply "rough" or "smooth," but combinative and/or deconstructive to the point where such conventional descriptions become meaningless when bathed in the sound itself. This is a really excellent meeting by some of today's leading electro-acoustic improvisers." (Dusted Magazine)
