Live atmospheric electo-acoustic soundscapes. Theremin, live electronics, flutes, electric violin, percussion, treated voices, kalimba, effects, drones all combine to create gorgeous sound worlds.
" a wide range of styles from the totally cosmic, via ethnic musics, through to bizarrely twisted jazz fusion." - Audion Magazine
Chris Conway really wanted to have a small exploraory trio to do live elctronics and treated acoustic music with. At one Talking Fish rehearsal only CC, Mick & Andy made it so they jammed a bit and CC saw the potential.
This recording is the best hour from 3 x 30min live sets. There were no rehearsal and they soon found some wondrous soundworlds, sometimes revisiting one in subsequent sets which gives this album a nice feeling of cohesion.
