Mercury - unknown

This union of two great Montréal musicians (Lori Freedman, clarinet, and Nicolas Caloia, double bass) has pushed past improvisation into finding a space to explore a series of compositions from friends and collaborators who are attuned to their working methods. The pieces (such as one from Martin Arnold, which consisted solely of a series of numbers) have a lot of "open" elements, giving constraints to the bullfrog rumbles, skronks, string sawing, pitch pipes and so on.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
