Oren ambarchi's 'Song Of Separation' was recorded during his recent European tour and is the latest in the mort Aux Vaches series released by Staalplaat documenting live radio concerts commissioned and broadcast by the VPRO Radio Show 'De Avonden'. This incredible piece is a thorough investigation of concepts established on last year's Suspension release (Touch, UK) and further explored on the forthcoming live LP Triste (Idea, USA). Here ambarchi employs a kind of tonal pointillism, reminiscent of the work of Morton Feldman, to explore the relativity of various frequencies cocooned between silences. These disembodied notes are incrementally layered taking on new value and meaning as they beat and resonate in sympathy with each other. Often sounds beginning in unison are turned against each other as new tones are brought into play. Never has Oren's melodic sensibility been so evident; 'Song Of Separation' documents a crucial stage in the work of this tireless innovator.
