Seven days and counting… (Kuramoto Synchronization)

Kuramoto Synchronization is the kind of recording that, had I not had another album scheduled, would have been its own release. I think the performance really shows off Dom’s steady-handed, assured skills as an improviser. And if you don’t know Caroline’s work, I think this might be an excellent place to start—she sounds phenomenal here. (Oh, yes, and because the weather conspired to cancel Mark’s flight, you get to hear three non-drummers alternately playing the role of the percussionist.)

into the unknown (reviews: Sirene 1009)

‘Sirene 1009’ (BAF000) with Han-earl Park, Dominic Lash, Mark Sanders and Caroline Pugh (artwork copyright 2017, Han-earl Park)

Animals? minerals? and monsters? “A cyborg slowly coming to terms with having a consciousness”? “drums like an octopus”? The first reviews of ‘Sirene 1009’ (BAF000), the CD/digital download album by Han-earl Park, Dominic Lash, Mark Sanders and Caroline Pugh.

Sirene 1009 (BAF000)

‘Sirene 1009’ (BAF000) with Han-earl Park, Dominic Lash, Mark Sanders and Caroline Pugh (artwork copyright 2017, Han-earl Park)

Muffled junkyard hammering (clangs! thud! snaps!) beat unlikely counter-rhythms; a suspension bridge rumbles in the turbulence with subwoofer scratches; bad traffic and extreme weather conspire elemental percussion; a broken public address system splutters and loops, evoking the intelligible.

Eponymous first album by Sirene 1009. Sirene 1009 is the cyborg virtuosity of Han-earl Park, the indomitable low-end growl of Dominic Lash, the unstoppable hits and clangs of Mark Sanders, and the controlled vocal mayhem of Caroline Pugh.
