A nice laid-back comfortable venue, and the ideal place
for improv., at least for a while anyway. This is the final, fourth release
documenting 2007 concerts at the Bambu bar. Culled from two hybrid concerts of
solos, duos, and jams involving 4 or 5 musicians, it amounts to a uniquely
wide-ranging mixture of styles, from the chaotic to the majestic, and on to
thundering mantric space-rock even. The near-on 80 minute opus filling disc 2
actually encompassed some 95 minutes in the concert (the join is overlapped
with a gradual fade, meaning you get most of the opus intact) and should
appeal to those that loved the Scanner Game recordings.
If you'd like to investigate more from this event, three further
pieces from the 18 April concert can be found on the Alto Stratus - Live @ Bambu release. Also in
the series are discs by Triax and Endgame.
The "Impromptu Electronic" concept has also
given birth to the hybrid quartet now known as Escape Route, and
the idea of such events now continues with Quadelectronic.
