More Info

Zeitlos schne Songkonstrukte auf dieser Debut-CD eines 5-kpfigen Projekts aus Richmond USA. Folk- und kammermusikalische Einflsse, aber auch orientalisch anmutende Gesnge und Sounds machen dies zu einem der besten songorientierten Alben der letzten Zeit fr mich .. Anklnge an z.B. CONSTELLATION-Projekte, OPION SOMNIUM, MUSIQUE CONCRETE ENSEMBLE, LABRADFORD..... [BarakaH, 2003]

"Tanakh is a layering of sound and structure that combines songwriting sensibility and improvisational abstractions that are as thick and rich as they are minimalist. These two seemingly opposed forms fluidly combine to forge dark sweet lulling gypsy melodies dug from Middle Eastern sands that have been knuckled across Appalachian washboards that shadow the city in which they live. Villa Claustrophobia marks the debut of this new project and features an all-star ensemble including Mic Turner (Dirty Three), Jessica Billey (Lofty Pillars), David Lowery (Cracker), Ned Oldham (Palace) and Nirmal Bajekal (Ravi Shankar's band) amongst others. Between them they bring vocals, violin, viola, cello, bass, percussion, electric and acoustic guitars, flugel horn, trumpet, clarinet, and various ethnic and home made instruments to the recording."
