Sakada - Undistilled

Sakada is: Mattin (computer feedback), Rosy Parlane (computers and radio) and Eddie Prevost (percussion). "Undistilled was recorded at live performances in London and Rotterdam in 2002. Components are a restricted range of percussion (Eddie Prevost), electronic sounds confected earlier for intuitive, tweaked release (Rosy Parlane), and nervous hyper-attention to every noise present, allowing spontaneous digital transfiguration of some (Mattin). The product is a formidably dense mesh of textures and a subtle alignment of urgency and stasis, persistence and interruption. A sound-body exalting in its raw and varied outer abrasions, tormented by heaving intestinal bass and pierced irregularity by silver screeches, yet somehow concealing a few inner surfaces of all but languid smoothness. Needless to say (or to continue demonstrating), it is wholly incommensurable with any attempt at verbal description."

Eddie Prévost

Eddie Prévost plays with immense fire, grace and invention. Founder of the essential AMM, collaborator of the greatest improvisers internationally, since the 60's he has kept a continuous contact with the scene and always manages to invent anew his contribution to "meta-music".

“Prévost's free drumming flows superbly making use of his formidable technique. It’s as though there has never been an Elvin Jones or Max Roach.” - Melody Maker

“Relentlessly innovative yet full of swing and fire.” – Morning Star
