BAKER, LAURIE SCOTT & ROBERT EVANS: Liquid metal Dreaming
An interesting set of pieces for combinations of basses, metal percussion, crwth (a 6 string lyre tuned to Pythagorean proportion 12:9:8:6, often bowed), tambura, lyre and fiddle - any two at a time. Airy, light, delicate and resonant sounds of great richness, floating for the most part in their own sonority, not too structured, not going anywhere in a hurry, but also not drones and not boring. Laurie you may know from the Scratch Orchestra, Robert is a celebrity in the tiny community of very early Welsh string music. This is a music easy to approximate in a lacklustre way and very hard, as here, to make luminous. Eccentric sleeve-notes but a fine recording. For immersive listening.
