Inclusion Principle - The 4, The 8, The 10
Cat. no: DISCUS110CD
Release Date: 2nd July 2021
The electronics / woodwind duo celebrates its 15th year of existence with this album, the first for 5 years.
Material developed for concerts during the period since the group’s previous CD release feed into this set of studio recordings. Transformed field recordings, electroacoustic abstraction and incisive beats are sculpted carefully to give this high contrast music a powerful drive.
This new album adds some deep grooves to the characteristic minimalist abstraction of the group, and cutting through the resulting electronic soundscape, both Per z and Archer play their front line horns with their characteristic angular melodic lines.
The CD begins with a series of rhythm driven pieces before concluding with an extended suite Ornament Of Light, which explores the more spacious side of the duo as heard in live performance, and whenever the players explore the resonant space in which the music is played.
Martin Archer: sopranino, soprano & baritone saxophones, clarinet, flute, recorder, chimes, organ, electric piano, synths and software instruments. Herv Perez: field recordings, sound design, beats and keys programming, electronics, alto and soprano saxophones, shakuhachi
