Norwich, recorded in February, 2005, at the School of Music, University of East Anglia, presents the current two-member AMM of Prévost and Tilbury â€” the third two-man version of the group (Prévost played as AMM with saxophonist Lou Gare and then Rowe in the 1970s). Rowe's departure is a tremendous shift, of course, both for his extraordinary sonic resourcefulness and his sometimes abrasive electronics (including his use of random or found verbal and musical messages). However, it is much more important to dwell on what the new AMM is. Norwich achieves an extraordinary tranquility, a gradual sense of calm unfolding and subtle isolated sounds, a spaciousness that may suggest George Crumb's Night Music or the quiet dynamism of Feldmanâ€”although, as improvisers, Prévost and Tilbury take the processes of subtle gradation much further.
