GREG KELLEY / KEITH FULLERTON WHITMAN

Yearlong

(Carpark) Used CD $3.00

Nearly 18 hours of live audio recording from 2001-02 whittled down to a 45-minute “astonishing, constantly evolving pool of noises and textures, considerably freer and more dissonant than what one associates with either performer. The opening track immediately thrusts the listener into an inhospitable electronic dust-bowl, with loose, jarring fragments of sound flying from every direction. Other tracks are studded with random, percussive scraps that stubbornly refuse to assemble themselves into recognizable rhythms. Elsewhere, snatches of piano or orchestral samples briefly bubble and surface before being dashed against the duo’s rugged electronic coastline. The most vibrantly constructed piece, recorded at the 2002 Impakt festival in Holland, finds the two sounding as if they are conducting a distant symphony from within a gentle meteor shower.”
