More Info

Abstrakte live-Improvisation der beiden Gitarristen mit viel Raum fr (fast) Stille und nicht-nach-Gitarren-klingende-Sounds, fr uns wie eine ausgewogene Mischung aus Elektronik und Organik. Schon in zweiten Auflage (300 Stck).

An album that documents the concert by two guitarists (of which one also plays electronics) held on April 5th, 2000 in Japan. Sugimoto is known for his improv style in which silence plays an extensive role. He strums a string, waits, strums the same and waits again. The space in which he plays becomes an important factor. Drumm is kinda similar, but he's responsible for the electronic part, so he fills his guitar strums, with occasional feedback, crackles and glitches. Yet, Drumm is a controller, so he never lets things out of control. Listening to these 41 minutes you feel the air of the Gallery where this was recorded, so much silent interludes, delicate
strumming, isolated cracks and more silence. If you try listening superficially, then the whole thing go lost. This requires your full attention, or better play something else. Zen in music. (FdW / Vital Weekly)
