David Papapostolou - One And Two [Self releash - 2006]This is improviser and sound artist David Papapostolou first cd releaser, offering up 3 tracks of improvised music utilizing acoustic guitar, Cello and Soprano Sax. All of the tracks seems heavy with world weary hazy, like watching figures move off across a iced white landscape.
May be it’s he way he producing long hovering tones and feed back /noise hazes that give this barren cracked cold landscape. He then adds various instrument; sawings, scuttling and dry ice scrapings.Also he incorporates elements of hissing, breathing , loud silences and mummers of background sound, which builds depth and rich micro tones into the tracks. The album creates a feeling akin to watching birds and animals forging for food in winter licked lands. Or listening from with-in a forest to the slow echo of heavey trucks on a winters road.The three tracks last around the seven minutes a piece, which leaves the cd a little short, but never the less worthwhile.
A rewarding bit of mood setting improvised music, which you can hear samples of and buy direct from David here.Roger Batty
