Emily Hay / Marcus Fernandos
flute, piccolo, piano, electronics
Fernandos-perc., field recordings, electronics
Emily Hay did was sing, she’d be plenty impressive. That she can do so
very much with reeds is gravy aplenty. And there’s more to come, as they
say. Three people are listed here as doing electronics and since they
overlap so much I can’t tell them apart. They are all marvelous at what
they do, however. This is a record full of mysterious calls and silence,
highly evocative textures and very assured playing throughout. Hay and
Fernandos have chosen their partners well, and the whole shebang is
testament to the wisdom of releasing the goods from the unconscious.
Very high marks for every track here.
