Boomkat Product Review:
High class hook-up between Oren Ambarchi and Robin Fox, new on Kranky. Ambarchi in particular has been on fire this year, having already released two top-notch albums on Touch and eMego and a whole host of other underground sides, and his rich vein of form continues with this awesome co-composition. Connected was created for a production of the same name by the Australian contemporary dance company Chunky Move. Artistic director Gideon Obarzanek is a huge fan of both Ambarchi and Fox's work, and invited them to develop their score - derived from both digital and analogue sources - in the Chunky Move studio as well as Melbourne's Head-gap Studio. It's a dream pairing really, the effect of Fox's rigorously scientific electronics enhanced, offset and amplified no end by Ambarchi's typically visceral, stunning guitar tones and treatments. It doesn't sound exactly like you'd expect, either: 'Standing Mandala', for example, comes over like The Durutti Column meets Anthony Manning meets Cluster, 'Game Of Two' foregrounds grungy, Earth-ish slo-riffage and 'Invigilitation' sounds like a church organ recital piped over from a culture far more advanced than our own.
