|january 2009 release ; lovely set featuring the guitar & electronics duo of christian malfray & pierre faure, first together by themselves (a short static acoustic guitar-strum intro, then a superb elongated electric guitar & processing suite that ends in a lock groove) followed by a collaboration with storied french improvising guitarist jean-marc montera (whose “mmmr” collaboration with loren connors, thurston & lee was a highlight of the late-90s free-guitar conflux - here the junction of his sandy bull-esque raga lines & malfray / faure’s bleep-heavy digital accents hits a very sweet spot) ...|
this art-gallery edition features a one-sided lp (oddly, longer than some double-sided ones !!!) housed in a picture-disc sleeve ... a bit on the pricey side, yes, but considering the edition & the quality of sound on offer herein ... no complaints from my end. highly recommended !!!
