Heavy solo release from deep as Marianas Trench Swedish drummer Sven-Ake Johansson. Johansson is primarily known in the US as the drummer on the two hugely influential Brotzmann recordings: For Adolphe Sax and Machine Gun. However, the Berlin-based percussionist/composer/filmmaker/performance artist/painter -- all of which he is remarkably adept at -- also has numerous FMP releases and a well documented relationship with Alexander Schlippenbach. Notable contributions to the canon of experimental music include his Concert for 12 Tractors and performance piece for movement performed with Neubauten singer Nick Cave guitarist Blixa Bargeld. Johansson's mode here is pure clarity in terms of form, technique and content. Quiet as a kitten on clouds in social settings, this recording ranges from pure Krupa swing on corrugated cardboard *cymbals* to dirty styrofoam shrieks and then even further out to close-mic'd cymbal investigations of tone and vibration. In performance, he's a pro and even in a recorded situation he manages to engage the listener with humor and experiment. Edition of 300
