2017-08-25 Ikonostasis


Ikonostasis by Kari Ikonen, Mathias Eick, Ra-Kalam Bob Moses, and Louis Sclavis.

Duo and trio settings with Ikonen on Piano, Prepared Piano, and Synthesizer.

Despite some passages of, I’m sure, well meaning ethno-tourism, this is a very pleasant release. I especially enjoy the prepared piano pieces and duets between Sclavis on clarinet and Ikonen on Synthesizer, with Sclavis matching Ikonen’s alien tones and bent notes. Evocative music, food for thought.
