76 minute piece recorded live in 1992, featuring the Rowe/Prévost/Tilbury trio; tremendous atmospherics and one of their ultimate recordings. "AMM's singular shocking moment in Newfoundland is stretched to a taut 76 minute whole. Any one detail is packed with absorbing incident: dig an instance featuring distant-sounding chimes, the loose, dank and otherworldly knots f piano notes and the great, ghastly bowel-rattling laughter of Rowe's guitar-sprung electronics. And then a lost radio voice is fed through Rowe's pickup, temporarily anchoring the night in space and time. Rowe's ether-trawling catapults you back to the excitement of the dawn of broadcasting. Way back then, a listener was asked if h could hear the singing of Caruso. No, he replied, but 'I could occasionally catch the ecstasy.' Just picture that early, primitive listening pleasure, when radio hams strained to pick up music over transatlantic wires, unsure whether they were tuning into heavenly static or the voice of angels, and you begin to get close to the pleasure of AMM." -- Biba Kopf, The Wire.
