Metzger, Paul / Fine, Milo [coll] – [Nero’s Neptune Records]

Paul Metzger’s Spontaneous Composition Generator was made with 37 music boxes with lots of modifications – it sounds very much at times like a prepared piano. Snippets of twinkly music box ditties intermix with slams and buzzes.

Milo Fine’s first piece Moosbrugger is noisy and at times shrill and sounds like percussion and prepared piano mixed with clarinet. The second track Ulrich is all percussion.

All tracks are rather whimsical and endearing with some very quiet spots throughout.
