Boomkat Product Review:
This fascinating live set was constructed using only drums and percussion as channelled through a laptop, recorded live at 3030 in Chicago during June, 2005. Famed experimental percussionist Hess (notably heard playing as part of On, a group which also includes Sylvain Chauveau) mans the physical instrumentation while electronics maestro Greg Davis processes the performance via a specially designed Max/MSP patch. The resultant noise these two make is at once ominous and beautiful, carving out a nerve-jangling metallic drone that's filled with cymbal-generated overtones and plenty of shimmering activity, occasionally bringing to mind the kind of soberly experimental percussion piece you might expect to hear from the likes of Jason Khan.
