A wild journey of free improvisation featuring live-looped voice and electric guitar.
A wild journey of free improvisation featuring voice and guitar, with effects and live looping. Tom Barton (vocals, live effects processing and looping) teams up with Diego Villalta to fully improvise this otherworldly album. Recorded in Osaka, Japan in 2016.
‘Barton and Villalta have certainly produced a work of contraries and anyone with an open mind and two receptive ears should welcome this brave, sensitive and not infrequently brilliant music.’
– Roger Farbey
“If you are looking for gentle re-treads of past greats, this is conceivably not going to be your cup of tea. Barton and Villalta have made an album that contrasts a becalmed inner world with the chaos and beauty of the world that they see around them. That they have managed this in such a melodic and engrossing way suggests a greater constancy to jazz’s restless spirit than any number of aspirational takes on the ‘Great American Songbook,’ but then each to their own. Highly recommended”
