BARRETT, NATASHA: Peat + Polymer (dbl. CD)
Some things are new - and they are interesting because they are new. Then they become commonplace; what then remains is whatís great. Natasha Barrett is consistently great. There was a time when composing with soundscape materials, processing and occasional instrumental and vocal additions was new; now itís a genre. To be interesting now, it has to solve the twin problems of form and content. This is what Natasha Barrett achieves and it amounts to a new form; it's not Cagily documentary and itís not aggressively processed; the sounds are real, but they are subtly manipulated; juxtaposing scales, acoustics, times, events and media with a dreamlike, twilit logic. Nice package.
