ORCHESTRA OF THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE (Double CD)
A large, paced, work from the prolific and inventive Martin Archer, ploughing a lonely but high integrity furrow with many keyboards, bass, drums, electric violin, winds and a lot of electronics in long form structures that draw eclectically on Terry Riley, Krautrock, late Alice Coltrane and others, but mainly the band follows its own musical logic. Itís worth your time because of its ambition and because it does what it does well. Some very nice string work. With additional contributions from a 20 voice (abstract) choir and La Garotte String Quartet. Who else is doing this? A labour of love. And two very substantial CDs for the price of one.
