Book Of Secrets
(Alien Music Productions) Used CD $8.00
“Fantastically warped improv in which complex encrypted messages fly back and forth at blinding speed,” says Opprobrium, “An insane barrage of tonal bombast and palette overload.” Ridgway’s slinky, pointillist technique on guitar synthesizer and prepared guitar bears a strange, unique array of microtones, while Unruh bleeds notes together on bass clarinet in a worried, tangled skein of oddly pitched sounds. From 1996.
(Alien Music Productions - AMP9401) Used CD $5.00
Decidedly abnormal and distinctly alien free improv duets from 1994. Guitar-synth-player Ridgway flickers into and out of sound worlds where stuttering crunches pass into golden washes and dissonant warbles morph into ringing telephones.
