|text of light|
recorded at the rotterdam international film festival in january 2005, this explosive piece from text of light typifies their abilities as a vivid freeform improvisational unit. ranaldo and lichts measured guitar work sets a basis on which kreigers blaring saxtronics, barnes percussive explorations and dj olives swirling turntable incursions can intertwine and augment one another. this piece ebbs and flows, each of the players listening intently and guiding the proceedings with disarmingly sublime yet focused intensity.
like all their recorded works to date, this piece was delivered in tandem with a live film projection this interaction between 20th century abstract and experimental film and live improvised performance at the very core of the unit.
