Ernie Althoff “Reliquary” CD




For perhaps the first time on an album-length release, Althoff abandons the music machines he is so well-known for in favour of constructing long pieces for small percussive objects. Recorded as three long sessions over three days, each of the three main tracks on this album were created by cutting up each session and overlaying it in thirds over the top of one another. The effect is of Althoff in concert with himself, with rewards abounding for the close listener.
