8/10 Brett Staff review, 04 November 2010

This record's like a breath of fresh air compared to most of what seems to pass for 'free' improv these days, it's total 'anything goes' type shit (alas, not in a Cole Porter sorta way) with a sound palette that'll have you scratching your head in disbelief, baffled at how two men can produce such a wide variety of sounds. Upright bass dude extraordinaire William Parker (who's played with countless famous names throughout the years (perhaps most notably Cecil Taylor, David S. Ware and Peter Brotzmann) does far more than merely provide a bedrock - although he does that more than ably when required - with his bowing technique out in full and frequent force, managing to give me visual impressions on both a large scale (seismic land-shifts conjured by low frequency rumbling) and a small one (the chaos of molecules dancing blindly with one another). Ninni Morgia's extraordinary guitar explorations provide similarly rich results and rarely sound anything like the instrument he's using as his source.. Quite how anyone can conjure such bizarre cosmic squiggles and ghostly electronic melodies from the humble six-string is beyond me. Well, I guess he's got a pedal or two but you know what I'm saying. A veeeeery interesting release.. And a genuinely exploratory one!
