"Totally different from Impur I (ReR FRFC1) -- which was a deconstructed, spatialised simultaneity of musical events that could only be heard through open windows or by wandering through rooms -- Impur 2 took the form of an unannounced performance across which audience members had to stumble by chance (and then collect their friends -- or not). Both events formed part of a commission by L'Ecole Nationale de Musique de Villurbanne in May 1996.This recording, painstakingly edited and re-mastered by Fred, appears as a full-on concert by a large 19 strong ensemble with Fred conducting as well as playing. It's built on rhythm, harmony, rock noise, exotic instrumentation, power, complexity and melodic writing -- with intermittent stretches of chaos, eccentricity and theatre, and fits comfortably into the aesthetic of his earlier performing ensemble projects, like Gravity, Skeleton Crew and Keep the Dog."
