Valeri Scherstjanoi & Hartmut Geerken – Stalllife LP



Sagittarius A-Star, Italy 2011

“A spare, dark, improvised performance between Hartmut Geerken and Valeri Scherstjanoi – recorded at the start of the 21st Century, but with a depth that goes back to Geerken’s earlier work! As with some of his best recordings, there’s a quality here that’s almost more focused on sound than music – lots of unusual percussive moments and ringing tones – shaped by the freedom of the performance, and slightly augmented by some wordless vocal utterances too! The record is only single-sided – a very unique, highly limited document of this striking event.”
