The first part of Martin Tétreault and Otomo Yoshihide trilogy entitled 1. Grrr is still fresh in our memory when we received the first part of this project. The difference between both albums could not have been greater. 1. Grrr is a harsh noise album with an extremely high level of energy, whereas 3. Ahhh is very low key with soft crackling. It’s like (contact) mics have been put in a room where a minimum of activity takes place. Both turntablists have gathered their calmest live recordings from Brest, Nijmegen, Orleans, Grenoble and Geneva. Although volumes and velocities have been scaled down, their work remains very interesting. Detailed improvisation with enough busyness and occasional loud squeaks and strange unidentifiable noises to keep the listeners attention.
