Everything derives from a few sources, yet the subtle intersections between Lacey’s EBowed monochord and the computer/mixer feedback activated by Vogel and Wastell soon become nodal points at which the music raises its head like a traveller awakening from sleep by a dusty roadside. The dialogue is reinforced by enthralling halos of ride cymbal by Wastell (courtesy of what Pete Townshend would call “his supple wrists”), while Vogel adds sparse clarinet shapes to a unique architecture. It’s a respectfully profane invocation which culminates in a concluding section where the slowly tolling cymbal becomes the natural substitute of the church bell that would never dare interrupt such intense communion.
