another faster than sound triumph and another new genre created – metal-noh (as in death metal and Japanese noh play) the evening had the wonderfully restrained voice of Hungarian death metal vocalist Attila Csihar - this was combined with wind sounds by saxophonist Cathal Roche, accordionist Clive Bell who also had an exceptional range of wind instruments and electro-acoustic improviser David Toop. it also featured a kind of primordial-natural-beat-box sound created by Phil Minton - poor visuals - more visceral mud was needed – the walk back to the car across the marshes was most excellent and i managed to add to the collection of landscapes at night images. next week at snape malting as part of taking the waters we’ve got tickets to Swandown by Andrew Kötting and Iain Sinclair. looking forward to it already.
