8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 08 April 2010
Not heard Chora before though I'm familiar the Sheffield free noise and improv scene they are associated with. Predominantly a duo of Ben Morris and Rob Lye they have been known to supplement their line-up with various collaborators including Pascal Nichols, Patrick Farmer, Kelly Jones and members of Helhesten & The Hunter Gracchus. 'Ruined Parabola' sees them depart from their earlier, electronic based compositions to embrace the Vibracathedral Orchestra model, utilizing live instruments and pedal manipulation. This is powerful psychedelic drone created with an emphasis on minimalism and intensity. Vocal sweeps and mutant brass play host to lingering drone-athons and found-sound manipulation that takes the listener on a kaleidoscopic journey through the confines of the mind. Totally mind bending improv at it's best.
