(Simon H Fell, Mark Wastell, Rhodri Davies)

"Anagrams To Avoid" LP

Studio recordings from 1995 of duo and trio improvisations for bass, cello and harp.

"Extremely right second release from this label. The tonal agility on display is at once highly agile and responsive and carefully considered, all three participants adopting an eagerly intelligent but refreshingly unassuming approach to their chosen strand of improvisational sound. Fell & co rework established conventions, revealing unsuspected elasticities, twisting and contorting them into new shapes. Comes in a rather gorgeous silkscreened cover to boot." Nick Cain OPPROBRIUM

"Each string player finds an infinite variety of sounding techniques on their chosen acoustic device - plucking, resonating, sawing, scraping, bowing, that a simple trio can produce a range of droning and percussion effects comparable with an entire orchestra." Ed Pinsent THE SOUND PROJECTOR
