** 2021 Stock ** "Between 2009 and 2011, Swiss percussionist Christian Wolfarth released four 7"s presenting eight short examples of his playing. Utilising purely acoustic methods, they varied between remarkably electronic sounding drones to clattering asymmetrical rhythms with quite a range in between, and showed the process of Wolfarth finding a voice in what was already a widely researched area of sound. Scheer is a new solo disc of two pieces that consolidate those experiments in extended works. This time Wolfarth uses just cymbals, which is easily forgotten and at times almost unbelievable - the warmth underlying his bowed drones has a purity rarely heard elswhere. Scheer is a stunningly well-conceived and executed construction that shifts suddenly from long, intense drone sections to brief, viciously sharp percussive parts with an atmosphere of oppressive, imminent danger present throughout." - Richard Pinnell, The Wire 361, march 2014
