9/10 Ant Staff review, 19 September 2007
This review was written at home in my little den...... Ahhhh! The child is safely tucked up in bed and I'm sipping a glass of wine listening to the latest emissions from New Zealand native and Braille records founder David Watson. This guy has previously recorded for Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label and the John Zorn affiliated Avant imprint. 'Fingering An Idea' is a 2CD set on Phil Niblock's Xi Records. Here is a man at the absolute cutting edge of, wait for it... Highland bagpipes. His pioneering work with the traditional Scottish instrument will appeal to both fans of academic / avant garde experimentalism as well as sonic explorers of noise / drone who could also get a buzz from this. His approach to the instrument is completely unconventional, highly original and relentlessly inventive. It creates an almost meditative atmosphere that resonates around your skull and transports you into tartan space. Track 4 has a consistent drone sound whilst layers of bagpipes weave a magical state of sonic bliss. Long, drawn out, hypnotic bagpipe tones, which are perfect to immerse yourself in for late night headphone listening. A real joy to these ears (perhaps it connects with my Scottish heritage?) and highly recommended. It's a genuine thrill to listen to something so unique both in its ideas and delivery. The second disc is music for acoustic and electric guitars which I shall be checking out this weekend. Marvelous stuff.
