★★★★★ Peachfuzz's Selection of the Month
Produced and released by no other than John Zorn and his Tzadik label, this is another special project from multi-instrumentalist/composer/improviser, Fred Frith, who has been bravely crossing musical borders since the early 1970s. No doubt dynamic and astonishing in their scope, these remarkable duo sessions were recorded during the filming of Thomas Riedelsheimer's exquisite documentary, Touch The Sound
, which is about Scottish virtuoso percussionist, Evelyn Glennie. Combining the unpredictability of an improvised first encounter with the magic of studio composition, this is music of another dimension, highlighting the power and sensitivity of both players.
