Drum wiz Michel F Côté has been an integral member of the Ambiances Magentiques scene since the early days, playing with Bruire, Klaxon Gueule, later François Carrier and a few offerings as leader. Young drummer Isaiah Ceccarelli is one of the most recent members AM network, only appearing on a few discs as of now. For this duo disc, both drummers also switch off on other instruments like lap steel, piano and trumpet. The sound is more like selective silences and spacious sonic fragments. I dig the blend of quiet mallets, bowed cymbals, minimal eerie electronics, stark piano and other evocative suspense-filled sounds. Although the drums are often at the center of many of these pieces, they are just one ingredient in the swirling, shape-shifting world of exotic sounds found here. There is also little or no repeating rhythms or pulses involved. I did find the entire CD to be most engaging, thought provoking and consistently fascinating.
