"Crux" is an Organum track, featuring Andrew Chalk on bowed gong, David Jackman on drone flute & bowed piano, Dinah Jane Rowe on drone flute and Stephen Stapleton on chair. "Flayed" features mainly AMM's Prévost on drums, general percussion and acme thunderer whistle, while Jackman added some bowed gongs and electronic sounds. "If you like the dronescapes of traditional Far Eastern musics, you'll love 'Crux'; if you wigged out to La Monte Young at his most conceptual, you'll do much the same with this. Better still, you may love 'Crux' having previously heard none of these supposed influences; you're simply wired for sound." - David Ilic.

Eddie Prévost plays with immense fire, grace and invention. Founder of the essential AMM, collaborator of the greatest improvisers internationally, since the 60's he has kept a continuous contact with the scene and always manages to invent anew his contribution to "meta-music".
“Prévost's free drumming flows superbly making use of his formidable technique. It’s as though there has never been an Elvin Jones or Max Roach.” - Melody Maker
“Relentlessly innovative yet full of swing and fire.” – Morning Star
