Stuart Chalmers and Claus Poulsen
…. is a meeting between two very active serial collaborators from UK and Denmark. Chalmers is looping tapes scavenged from the landfill of time and makes trance meditations on the Swarmandal and using electronics. Poulsen concentrates on bowed cymbal, toy synth, effects and field recordings.
“Quite a surprise; a pleasant surprise at that. They call this ‘fifth world’ music, which is, of course, a bunch towards Brian Eno and Jon Hassell’s ‘fourth world’ music, which the latter described as “a unified primitive/futuristic sound combining features of world ethnic styles with advanced electronic techniques”.
