Agathe Max (from Lyons, currently based in London) mostly performs as a solo violinist, and has also worked with Rhys Chatham, Carla Bozulich, Alexander Tucker and Melt-Banana.
Kiev-born, Baltimore-raised, Leitrim-based Natalia Beylis plays in Woven Skull and Divil A’ Bit, with solo work involving tape manipulation, field recordings and keyboard improvisations.
A chance crossing of paths in London led to an Irish tour and the recording of these duo improvisations at Beylis's home, inspired by and titled after Harry Clarke's illustrations for Hans Christian Anderson's fairytales.
The lengthy title track meanders with intent across time, space and both sides of the tape. Along the way it hints at raga and various European traditional styles, with Max's labyrinthine looping over the dense thickets conjured up by Beylis's mandola.
This is bookended by a pair of shorter pentatonic piano-led tracks, and a more abstract opener and closer.
Heady, timeless, vivid and deeply psychedelic.
