Berlin’s Karlrecords previously released of a pair of Haino collaborations with experimental ensemble Zeitkratzer, which placed the Man in Black in musical contexts that stood out as unusual even in his vast and varied discography.
The same can be said of this LP with Istanbul’s free jazz outfit Konstrukt. Haino’s career began with the Ayler-worshipping Lost Aaraaff, and while this feels like part of the same lineage, there’s little cosy or familiar in Konstrukt’s eviscerating mix of electronics, percussion and acoustic instruments, even before those hair-raising shrieks are factored in. A haunted transcontinental underworld racket.
