Kaiser, Jeff and Skaller, Phil – “Endless Pie” – [Pfmentum]


Two Strange dudes from UCSD, they’re both getting their Master’s degree from their right now. This was recorded at UC San Diego in November 2010. Skaller makes all kinds of sounds out of the prepared piano, sounds I’ve never heard before, while Kaiser plays a mix of trumpet, vocals, electronics and the flugelhorn.

Both CDs start with 14-15 minute epics that fade you in and out of concentration, it’s weird, but it’s also fun, you can tell they’re having a good time fucking with each other’s brains. Pretty storm sounds, a little salsa at one point, leaking faucet, creaking swings on haunted playground, jangling chime drone, broken children’s show theme song.

The flugelhorn, at times, made me feel like waking up to the horn after getting dosed in my sleep during Basic Training for the military. No favorites here, all gold! Put it in, make it feel good…
