Bill Laswell and Tetsu Inoue Cymatic Scan Cymatic Scan is a set of deep ambient experiments from Bill Laswell and Tetsu Inoue, two masters of that style. This CD leans heavily towards the ambient and minimalist ends of that style. Bill and Tetsu add just enough experimentation to give the set extra style and panache. ~ Jim Brenholts Bill Laswell: Operazone: The Redesign Bill Laswell has done it all. Alan Douglas came up with a concept and Bill ran with it. Operazone: The Redesign is his reconstruction of some fairly well known opera pieces, sans vocals. This CD is absolutely way too cool! The music is largely orchestral with some dynamic jazz influenced solos. Bill laid a techno-electronic rhythm track beneath the strings and winds to give the reconstruction a modern flair. And it just that - a flair. Bill's reconstruction preserves the intent and beauty of the originals. The modern flavor is snappy and jazzy. This is loads of fun and highly essential. ~ Jim Brenholts, EER-MUSIC.com Bill Laswell: Emerald Aether: Shape Shifting Bill Laswell is one of the most diverse electronicians of today. Overall, he is one of the most diverse musicians of this - or any other - era. He has performed with some of the greats of modern jazz (as bassist and/or producer); he has performed with some of the greats of modern electronic music; his solo electronic CD's are legendary; he is a pioneer in ethnic ambience. One of his most astonishing and eclectic achievements is Emerald Aether: Shape Shifting. This CD is a translation of traditional Celtic music in today's digital domains. Bill calls the process reconstruction. Irish music owes a great deal to other ethnic influences. It reflects those ethnicities while remaining distinctly Irish. Bill capitalized on those influences in his reconstruction and added modern techno rhythms and electronic atmospheres. The result is a deep enigmatic set of ambience with a broad appeal. It is essential to all lovers of Celtica and eclectica. For fans of Bill's, it is beyond essential! ~ Jim Brenholts, EER-MUSIC.com
