Chora / Quivers
Format: Vinyl LP
Chora is the British duo of Rob Lye and Ben Morris. Their music is a gorgeous mix of psychedelic free-form improvisation and ecstatic free jazz, with hypnotic percussion, cymbals, bowed instruments, eerie reeds, and an overall ritualistic, shamanic vibe.
Quivers are guitarist Ninni Morgia and upright bassist Jordon Schranz, joined here by drummer extraordinaire Mike Pride, a Milford Graves student who has played with Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Nels Cline and Keiji Haino among others. Their improvisations show some amazing timbric research and creative interplay, sometimes reminding of great historical groups like AMM, Musica Elettronica Viva and Smegma. Pressed on high-quality virgin vinyl, artwork by Pascal Nichols of Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides. Edition of 300.
