Steve Noble / drums
Yoni Silver / violin and bass clarinet
Unreal voices that emerge from the manic manipulations of metal against the skin intermingle with the resonant cry of bells and gongs that magically melds into the high screeches of the clarinet […] Home is a fantastic album that brings out the hidden side of percussion, and of a searching woodwind player: the two artists forge magical connections as each musician’s timbres and sonic vibrations melt and mix until the circle is completed. A masterpiece of radical improvisation.
