8/10 Ant Staff review, 26 August 2010
Choras side on this recorded it totally spooked. The line up here is Rob Lye, Ben Morris, Ben Nash and Karl Brummer. Cloning my eyes it's not difficult to imagine being on some shamanic ceremony or ritual. Although this is clearly freely improvised it feels very controlled with a clear vision, although what that is I'm unsure. 'I Met An Oak Tree As Tall As My Finger: And It Was Suffering' Is a super mysterious blend of reeds, percussion and bowed instruments. Quivers side pairs up nicely with Chora's with both complementing the others sound. Stylistically quite similar although Quivers approach is far less subtle opting for itchy and intense hyperactive sounds that build a strange and almost unfathomable abstract sound world with glimpses of something tangible. Like Chora there's also a sort of free jazz methodology at work here.
