Tip! *Edition of 100.* Fire Point is multicolored and elusive. The sounds contained therein are agitated, fluid and amorphous, as if listening to the sonic realizations of various characteristics of multiple landscapes. Branches intersect, tree foliage collectively billows, and groundwater seeps into the encompassing substrate. The interactions of these three musicians are effortless, and is the result of both remote and physically-collaborative engagements. Starting with percussion tracks laid down by Louis Wall, Damon Smith soon improvised upright bass over these tracks, and NNN Cook added such layers as synthesizer, electric organ, and saxophone. All members contributed deftly to edits and arrangements, and notably Fred Tompkins, a past Elvin Jones collaborator, played flute on “Spectre of Los” and the title cut of the album. That this album exists so organically despite the variety of instruments and recording sessions used, is not only a testament to the musicians’ prowess, but also to the current hyper-ability of long distance music creation.
