Album Review

Edgewalker Experimental Instrm – “Peering Over ” – [Ramp Records]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   A Library, CD

I guess most people make music, while others
make instruments that’ll make other people
make music. Tom Nunn is evolving through his
metallic machinanimations…Crustaceans, Bugs,
Beetles, Rays, even Bats. Regrettably no photos
found here. Electro-acoustic descendants from
when Cage first stuck a spoon in a piano. Some
of the vibes I got here included a gamelan
factory that builds robot Danny Elfmen(#1)
thunderclap cymbals & heavy hate machinery(#2)
underwater marimbas(#3) percussion emulating
lion roar(#4) “there’s something scurrying
through the world’s largest toilet tank”(#5)
birdcage follies(#8). Nunn solo(#6) shows off
a range of sound from bowed(?) harmonics to a
total dinosaur skeleton chiropractor delight.
Wise Willie Winant and the Mighty Moe on here.
Solid experi-metal sound construction
