Data (Lo-Fi Duets)

(Monotype - MONO047) CD $14.00

Bassist who also builds unusual noise devices and stomp boxes performs with Martin Tetreault, Christine Sehnaoui Abdelnour, Sebastien Cirotteau, and Mario Gauthier. “Active, airy and percussive music with little in the way of tonality or lushness” (thank God). Data is “harsh, angular, chewy,” and overall “of a piece with … late ’90s turntablism and cracked electronics.”
