We know clarinetist Lori Freedman & sampler-player Diane Labrosse from various discs on the Ambiances Magnetiques label. They other two players are new names for me. This disc was recorded live the Vieux-Theatre in Saint-Fabien in September of 2005. Much of this skeletal, cautious improv. The blending of the acoustic instruments (clarinet, cello & percussion) with the sampler is often subtle and well-integrated. At times it seems as if there is little going on yet there is a great deal of space and interaction at a more minimal level. There a number of eerie moments as well. Although this disc is not excitement-producing, the cautious sounds are quite evocative and thoughtfully constructed.
