LIGHT COORPORATION: Aliens from Planet Earth
The second release from this Polish quintet and quite different from the first; recorded through the window of the Art Gallery Konin water tower – with a single microphone just to make things difficult –this is, nevertheless, a high quality recording – and a surefooted performance; you could waste a lot of expensive studio time and money trying to get close to this clear, very integrated, sound. They use guitars, a baritone cello, bass, drums, violin, tenor saxophone, analogue tape recorder and a kaosilator to make persuasive sounds that float to and fro between improvisation and composition: sometimes one sometimes the other, sometimes both; but it always sounds purposeful. The kind of music that would benefit from being listened to in a darkened room. It’s not a shocker but there’s enough here to lend them a sympathetic ear.
