  Slow Attack Ensemble`s Music For Turntable Guitars & Sampled Instruments collects 9 experiments in realtime sampling and live instrumental improvisation.

Creations of complex careful counterpoint that pay homage to the process of Steve Reich. Form And Fade, for example, is a mini Music For 18 Musicians. Painting a picture of light playfully catching the crested tops of waves. Summer shimmering on shorelines, an ocean of gold stretched out before a wide open horizon. The record`s ample use of digital delay also can’t help but summon the smudged Zen pop of Arthur Russell’s World Of Echo. With string harmonics that recall the downtown disco-not-disco savant`s beloved cello. Nowhere more so than on Rivers Turn To Waterfalls, where Russell’s lovelorn drone is definitely in there somewhere. Sending you swimming, submerged, aquatic, with a chorus of dolphins and whales.

Throughout, the use of Time Lag Accumulation has bell-like chimes and simple synth lines duetting in dubwise. Their calm, cerulean lyric offset by crackle and static. Their short song repeating, overlapping, become infinite. Orchestral loops, squeezed, elongated, exploded, found sound sources are serenaded by serene, 6-string filigree. Sonic kaleidoscope colours build blinking tone poems - hypnotic hallucinations with allusions to musical illusions of outer space. Ninety Seconds For Celeste is a study of isolates from the titular idiophone organ. A lullaby of hushed, intimate tape hum. Recurring Afterimage closes the collection - calling forth a comfort of angels - with a glissando crescendo of celestial new age harp.
