Review: Jamaica!! Meets Sly & The Family Drone – Celebrating The End Together In The Good Time Swamp
16 players, all the drums, chicaning trains, multidirectional frenzy.
“Railway trains only begin to exist when they are derailed…” – Georges Perec, The Infra-Ordinary (1973).
Breaths threaded between thumps and scurries of percussion.
Orchestral drools, electronic flecks and vital ambiguity.
Staring out over the water. Waiting for the call to resume.
Emergency drained of colour.
The space where translations converge and meaning is spilled. Field recordings, divergent rhythms, voices, instruments, the bloom of possibility.
Recollections of Moscow from Israel. Glittered power stations, labyrinthine underpasses.
Voice, violin and the act of listening, negotiating the desires for expression and balance.
A convergence of the human, the animal, the botanical.
