*2022 stock.* Two CDs at the price of one! In 2007 Voice of Eye ended their 12-year silence with 2 CD-R improvisation volumes: Emergence and Immersion. The works were released for their European tour in editions of only 100 each and sold out fast. Now those impossible-to-find, extremely limited releases are finally available on factory-pressed CD’s! Old Europa Cafe of Italy has re-released Emergence & Immersion in a fine 2-CD 4 page full-color digifolder, re- mastered with a new bonus track, “Peacock Symphony”, offering 2 and a half hours of music.
Spontaneity and raw emotional expression punctuate and keen throughout. Although completely improvised, the music seems amazingly composed. One can intuit that the musical re-uniting of this duo created a vortex in the worlds. Wildness, beauty, humor, darkness, fear, horror, yearning, grief and vast spaciousness inhabit this mysterious lively music. Herein one finds some of the source material for their recent live shows: “Immersion”, “Dark Ritual”, “The Gates of Oblivion”, “Free”. A large array of instruments are used here including guitars, trombone, flutes, double-reeds, percussion, voices as well as Voice of Eye’s self-made instruments: Squawk Box, Bass-Thing, Jeemna, Thing and Thing-mini. Step into the vortex !
Emergence was realized Dec. '06 - Jan '07.
Immersion was realized June - July '07.
As the first releases in 12 years, Voice of Eye felt it authentic to return to an improvised approach for these projects.
The music, including loops, was created live without overdubs.
These works were originally released as cdr special editions of 100 each for the 2007 reunion concert in Oakland, CA and subsequent European tour.
Track 1-12 - 'Peacock Symphony' is a new bonustrack, not found on the original release.
