John Howes & Michael Holland : Wabi -Sabi 3"cd


Michael Holland meets John Howes in melancholy matrimony with a sweetly frayed, 20 minute synth meditation on the Japanese notion of Wabi Sabi; the embrace and acceptance of transcience and imperfection.

The two coax warbling electronic oscillations into a curling ribbon of wistful expression, eschewing the more leaden beats of Howes’ releases for Melodic in favour of a waltzing, airborn rhythm that carries the piece along its ferric path.

Its naught less than lovely.
