Album Review

Yoshihide, Otomo/Ostertag, Bob – “Twins ” – [Creativeman Disc]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   A Library, CD

1996 musical meiosis from Otomo and Ostertag.
Three originals from Herb Robertson (#1 super
squiggly plunger trumpet), Chris Cutler (#3 a
great flanged percussion meets shortwave piece)
and Yagi Michiyo (17-string blues koto style).
Ostertag’s style is sampler as mutater, heavily
processed layers create momentum-mounting
monoliths. Original input is more disguised or
destroyed. Check #8 – a trumpet train tunnel to
2001.Meanwhile Otomo is more juxtaposer-composer
outside samples (TV, movies) are added. Like
his outstanding Ground Zero work (“Null & Void”),
the results can be humorous. #2 and #6 kick out
some martial sampling arts.
