Album Review

Ambarchi, Oren / O’Rourke, Jim – “Indeed” – [Editions Mego]

Max Level   9/13/2011   12-inch, A Library

Two side-long electro-acoustic explorations, spacious and minimal. Actually, it seems to be one long piece divided roughly in half. Side A (19:38) begins in a mildly alarming fashion, but then settles down into a harmonious and warm sound world; this piece might even be described as meditative. Side B (17:43) picks up where Side A left off, then adds some unexpected dissonant elements, and to my ears it’s the more active of the two parts. Ambarchi and O’Rourke show admirable restraint throughout, leaving plenty of empty space where someone else might have kept piling things on. A really interesting listening experience.
