Vigroux, Franck & Sharp, Elliott – “Hums 2 Terre ” – [Signature/Radio France]
Improvised duo constructions from two far-reaching multi-instrumentalists. A quote from the liner notes: “We create formal framings but fill them like punk rock.” Haphazard organization, in other words. The pieces are amoebic, ever-changing; colors are displayed and then hidden again. Beats appear but tend to get swallowed up in the general morass, never to return. Guitars and reeds mingle and separate, conversing along the way with piano, keyboards, electronics, computers, turntables, and minidiscs. Field recordings of dialog appear from time to time. Cool and brainy work, just as one would expect from this pair.
