Label: Another Timbre
“Very strong, extremely well integrated set, Krebs and Davies meshing perfectly....next to impossible to describe to any degree of satisfaction, but that's usually the case with something as beautifully positioned as this. Mandatory.” Brian Olewnick, Just Outside
Annette Krebs (guitar, recordings, mixing board) and Rhodri Davies (electric harp & electronics) played together as a duo for the first time for a day at Annette’s flat when Rhodri was visiting Berlin in April 2008. Annette then spent a long time editing and mastering the material, and the result is an intriguing and powerful disc whose three inter-relating tracks together present a kind of musique concrète for the 21st century.
Annette Krebs is a distinctive voice in contemporary improvisation. She has worked with many improvisers from Germany and elsewhere, but has released recordings only very selectively. As well as solos, she has produced discs with Robin Hayward, Alessandro Bosetti, Toshimaru Nakamura and Ernst Karel.
Rhodri Davies is the leading harpist in improvising and contemporary music circles. He has extended the language of his instrument in consistently radical ways and has had numerous works composed for him. He has worked with most of the leading names within improvised music, and has recently recorded discs with Taku Unami, Phil Minton, Lee Patterson, Toshimaru Nakamura, Lucio Capece, John Butcher and many others.
