about

The second installment of duos from Christian Munthe, this time paired with Patrick Farmer, the percussionist/sound investigator known for co-founding the “online curatorial platform” Compost and Height as well as releasing many recordings on the UK-based Another Timbre label (alongside artists such as Sarah Hughes, Dominic Lash, and Daniel Jones). Angle of Repose presents four improvisations pitting Munthe’s acoustic guitar against Farmer’s “acoustic turntable”, an instrument he has been investigating quite thoroughly over the last number of years. What that instrument credit means, exactly, is not entirely clear, for two reasons. One is that, while Munthe’s credit reads familiarly enough, what he does to his guitar often sounds nothing like the instrument’s usual voice. He mangles and ravages the body and strings, extracting tense, brittle textures and rustlings of pure sound. And the second reason is that whatever Farmer is doing to/on his “acoustic turntable” sounds equally like nothing that normally comes out of a turntable, even from the legions of so-called turntable experimentalists out there. What we are left with is a very tactile, texture-heavy dialogue between two highly competent improvisors, using invented languages to conjure up some truly personal music.
