Tomas Korber / Christian Weber / Katsura Yamauchi - Signal To Noise Vol. 2

from Vital Weekly # 577:

Volume two is by Tomas Korber on guitar and electronics, Christian Weber on contrabass and Katsura Yamauchi on saxophone, recorded at the great location of YCAM in Yamaguchi, Japan. In the first piece the three players play by the mighty book of silence: a sound here, silence, a sound there, some careful blow, a hiss, a crack and a strum.
This is nice music for sure, but it's also a bit predictable. Maybe they arranged it like that, or perhaps it was the start of the evening?
In their second and last things are much more free and open. Sound is more present and each of the individual instruments are more easily to be recognized. It seems as if mistakes are allowed in here, which make a less subtle piece, but I liked the open ended character of this one. A great piece and one that is good. Not a bad score.
