Debut album by trio of Laura Altman, Monika Brooks and Magda Mayas.
Great Waitress initially possessed a dual processor – the long durations and static patience of the Brooks and Altmans’ duo and Mayas’s compulsion for change. This created a vital rub – there was an edge between these world views. But as they evolved this duality splintered into multiplicity. If the duo suggested an infinite field then the collective conjures forces that make the music genuinely cosmic. Multiplicity emerges in Great Waitress through virtuosic collective listening, and creates a unique lucidity. This is intricate, complex music – but as the last track shows, they can also converge to make the monumental.
