The Sound Projector (UK) – Ed Pinsent
Easel „Bloom“ (veto-rec/exchange 011)
Hot as Sun
Latest instalment in the Switzerland-Chicago crossover plan of Christoph Erb is Bloom (VETO-RECORDS / EXCHANGE 011), where said Erb picks up his tenor and bass clarinet and puffs up a tasty casserole of very free improv with Fred Lonberg-Holm and Michael Zerang, here calling themselves the trio Easel. Of particular note since it’s one of the rare occasions where Fred, who wields a fine cello, is also blarting out a wild array of guitar work and live electronics. Dense activity from all; at any time in these three lengthy sessions, the air is fraught with intense detail and many things happening at once. The combined effect is like a heaving, gigantic blob of plasma, from which sharp metallic objects are poking out and then receding. To put it another way, a slow-motion storm happening in the office, such that all the staplers, pencils, scissors, desks and other stationery are set a-whirl. From 17 February 2015.
