Artist: ERNESTO DIAZ INFANTE + BOB MARSH
Title: Rags and Stones
Format: CD
Label: Public Eyesore (@)
Ernesto Díaz-Infante at prepared guitar and Bob Marsh at violin and cello for 50' of extreme improvisation. Strings are plucked, beaten and caressed without any kind of structure, rhythm or progression. I could honestly say I've found this cd-r incredibly tedious. I guess it's a matter of gut-feeling, these sessions left me without any kind of emotion, suggested no image, and my general impression was that of a casual (in the negative sense of the word) string-plucking - probably appealing to the players but sterile to my ear. I hate to write this as I generally like improvisation and noise, but this is just what improvisation should avoid being - boring.
