Boomkat Product Review:
A second album from Japanese avant-garde / noise icon Keiji Haino in collaboration with free jazzers Konstrukt...
"Celebrating their 10th anniversary, Konstrukt have an impressive catalogue including collaborations / performances with significant musicians like Peter Brotzmann, Joe Mcphee, William Parker, Akira Sakata, Thurston Moore and many others - and they keep exploring new ground.
In 2016 Konstrukt invited Keiji Heino to their home town Istanbul for a recording session that resulted in a quite unique album: "A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little That Way Lies A Quagmire" - featuring all the elements you may well have expected but also offering some wild curveballs, including a kind of 70's fusion style on that album's closer.
Two days later the free jazz quartet and the Japanese avant-garde icon continued their adventure with a public performance at SalonIKSY, pushing things further and raising the level of energy and rawness. Carrying the same title ""A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little That Way Lies A Quagmire" makes this a sister release to their previous studio effort. Or, as the saying goes: "same same but different!"
