Three men with tubas improvise for half an hour. The first ten minutes what sounds like one singular tone is vibrating like a tense wire, the musicians walking on the wire. Then they fall down into the deep, even taking long breaks before they rise again towards the end of the piece.
I would guess that this meaningless description will get only the worst among you hooked, but head on over to SOFA, and see if you get it then.

Robin Hayward is a new one to me (he plays a microtonal tuba), while Martin Taxt has visited the blog earlier with Koboku Senju, Jæ and Splashgirl, and Kristoffer Lo was here with Pelbo. I am sure that you will agree that the music of Hayward/Lo/Taxt is more like Koboku Senju than Pelbo!
