THE REMOTE VIEWERS: Nerve Cure
THE REMOTE VIEWERS: Nerve Cure
Closely composed, calculatedly dissonant, quite minimal and brutally austere, this is not a record to roll the carpet back for. But itís intriguing nonetheless; no one else I can think of organises their resources in quite this way, eschewing pulse and consonance, but still holding to clear parallel lines and calculated punctuations. This is a highly intended music. Its palette deliberately narrow: three saxophones, piano/percussion and contrabass/harp Ė with guests Adam Bohman (bowed objects) and Caroline Kraabel Baritone sax) each on one track Ė and the compositions are unyielding; but there is considerable variety nonetheless, and every sound is made to count (there are some echoes of Tim Hodgkinsonís Western Culture aesthetic on one or two tracks, but thatís as close to familiar as this record gets). In other words highly individual, generically indeterminate (though closest to contemporary composition) and engaged in some proper experimentation, undeviated by a wish to be loved.
