Alex Elgier and Cecilia Quinteros - Hiken! (2017)




  • Free jazz
  • Improvised music 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Experimentalism 
  • Electro-acoustic

Comment: first of all, these 27 minutes and some seconds additionally are sexy and puckish. It is played by a man and a woman thereby creating a sultry synergy between each other. Furthermore, the finishing part of the composition is quite eargasmic and ending with a powerful culmination. In fact, it starts off in the same manner. On the other side, it is prankish because of consisting of an improvisational set which in turn consists of an innumerable amount of chords and abrasive key appearances on the piano and the cello respectively as if played on a prepared instrument with an extended technique. I would prefer to call it modal jazz because both instruments used to progress in different directions to eventually meet each other in mutual areas in a quite agitated and frantic way. Like demonstrating the clash between the sexes. And thereafter getting together again. Like the human life supposedly used to be. That's cool, I mean highly ear-provoking even if it is quite austere and abrasive by its instrumental park. Musically it used to be a play with angularity and deformations where the chords will get partly broken and then repaired again. Intensity is a third component within the formula. And it is the basic cycle of the cooperation. The intriguing  outing is a bit in the discography of Pan Y Rosas Discos, a dwelling place for experimental music worldwide.
