John Butcher and Eddie Prévost - Interworks
This is John Butchers collaboration with AMM sound-sculptor Eddie Prevost. From the disc’s opening gestures, the soundworld invokes all things interior and meditative. The improvisations certainly do not sound like AMM, but some of that legendary aggregate’s sonic mystique is in evidence, as each sound seems to exist, for the most part, as a force to be reckoned with in and of itself. Drones ebb and flow as Butcher explores his astonishing brand of multiphonics and Prevost is right there with him every step of the way. Indeed, the two musicians create orchestral textures at many points throughout this absorbing set.
