Recorded at Radio Studio DRS in Bern, Switzerland during 1994, this collaboration between these two giants of improvised music features O'Rourke on guitar, while Muller supplies electronics and drums.
Perhaps a mark of its vintage, Slow Motion has a more measured and cerebral feel to it than much of what you might hear on today's freely improv-ed noise circuit, and the more spacious, untethered timbral investigations of 'A Faster Silence' and 'An Atlantean Returned Knows The Value Of The Stars' seem to hint at a closer relationship with the extremities of twentieth century modern classical composition than with the kind of expressive, instantaneous sounds you might generally associate with the field.
Wonderful, if somewhat heavy-going material throughout, Slow Motion comes highly recommended to all you adventurous and intrepid listeners out there.
A jazzy Noise Experimentalism.
