CD - John Ettinger - "Inquatica"
Inquatica comes off as a tour de force of sound sculpting where Ettinger and Forbes develop loops of material that function as departure points, main themes, counterpoint, drones, sound collages, and all points between. There are completely acoustic tracks as well, with no looping at all. The music is tumultuous in some pockets, grooved, lyrical and rocking in others.
"Radiant, transporting and with a beauty which reveals more of itself with each repeated playing, Inquatica is a second masterpiece..."
