he new solo album by American maverick trumpeter Peter Evans, titled after a thought provoking essay by philosopher Ran Prieur, NY trumpeter Peter Evans uses the studio as a compositional tool via overdubbing and looping to create epic virtual duos that push the trumpeter to the extreme. "Titled after a thought provoking essay by philosopher Ran Prieur, it is a heavyweight pressing and comes housed in hand screenprinted wrap around sleeves featuring the forceful brushwork of 15 year old artist Owen Gould. Recorded during two sessions at Eastcote Studios, London, this album sees Evans push into uncharted territory by utilizing the recording facilities as compositional tools. Overdubbing and looping are the two significant techniques employed on this album. In the first two tracks Evans pushes his instrument and his lungs to its opposite extremes whilst testing the listener's stamina. The closer of Side A, however, is also the first track to make use of studio experimentation featuring both looping and overdubbing. Following are a steaming duo freely improvised by two trumpets and an extended recording of the innermost grumbles and utterances of the instrument. The album finally ends with an epic two part piece which needs to be heard to be believed!" -Dancing Wayang
