LA PLANTE, SKIP: La Plante
From the festival of microtonal music. La Plante is an instrument builder, and all these pieces work around the unique properties customised invented instruments: cloud chamber bowls, glass rods, fire alarm bells, bent stainless steel, jars, soda straws, yoghurt containers, cinder blocks, hoses, pieces of wood, conduit pipe, and so on. The opening track deliberately references Partch and is excellent. Subsequent pieces explore different ideas, and different sets of instruments; always eccentric, often effective.
