As usual I'm left with a pile of random stuff to attempt to write some encouraging words about so without further ado we'll take on this thing. As it states in the press release “Cordophone” is a French word which refers to musical instruments whose sound comes from the vibrations of one or several strings. There. That's what you call an education. Mr Small and his many merry chums gather round and in various configurations to make a racket that is part chamber improv, part electro-acoustic drone and two parts deranged experimental soundtrack. Both playful and experimental, this collection takes on everything from tumbling free-jazz structures, impish flecks of discordance; grounded feedback; free-folk, jarring experimental classicism and flashes of musique-concrete and moulds these disparate styles into an ever-evolving jumble of improvisational dramatics with startling moments of beauty. On many occasions it's a challenging listen but because of the fiercely accomplished and fearless musicians involved (I spy names such as Nils Frahm, Aidan Baker, James Johnston and Rob Ellis amongst a bewildering array off guest collaborators) it comes across as a rather stunning sonic concoction.
