Record Label: Root Strata
Montreal stalwart Roger Tellier Craig (of Le Revelateur and Fly Pan Am) returns to Root Strata under his given name to offer a stunningly abstract pair of compositions indicating a severe departure from his earlier work. While Instantanes might at first evoke acousmatic and musique concrete traditions, the two side-long snapshots Roger presents feel far more spontaneous and rustic than those trappings might suggest, or as Luc Ferrari would say ''a concrete music of the poor.'' A studied meditation over ten years in the making, Instantanes is a surreal mix of the familiar and the alien, a lush garden indifferent to human cultivation or experience. Includes download code.
