Psychefolk Magazine May 2011
Turkish ambient guitarist Erdem Helvacioglu found an improvising partner in the Australian cello player Ros Bandt. In the beginning it is a cello improvisation, which leads the score, with harmonic echoing sounds from guitar accompanying with echoing keyboards-like textures. This improvisation is led by a sad dry cello sound with old music or ethnic flavours, changing shape and colour more often. Oscillating and picking variations occur on the guitar, the cello takes a picking theme. Then the guitar starts to lead, first oscillating, after the example of the cello (3) and Erdem added windy sounds (4), more complex machine-like sound harmonies occur (5), and bowed vibrating tones and occasionally distorted guitar sounds (6). Also the cello performed more free sound-sensitive and wrapping bowed sound improvisations. The guitar picks a bit with lots of echoes droning. An album between (mostly electronically processed guitar based) ambient music and real live improvisation.
