"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"
Wednesday, 15 July 2015
Compelling, expansive sounds from recent collaborators (Naked Island) Felicia Atkinson & Brian Pyle - FA in another trans-Atlantic, male/female pairing (La Nuit), this time with Peter Broderick.
Where La Nuit's Road Snakes is a writhing, echoing vamp adhesively shaped around that intimate but distant voice's swerves between English & French, Ensemble Economique's From The Train Window, Red Flowers On The Mountain is all lulling wide-screen stillness - a tranquil, glowing tone poem.
Broderick on La Nuit: "after she left I treated those words as lines of an opera under which to make a ghostly string arrangement"...
