"Knitter is the first 7" from this Norwegian duo -- guitarist, improviser and composer John Hegre (also in Der Brief) and Lasse Marhaug, one of the most productive musicians in the international noise/experimental underground of the last 10 years. Jazzkammer combines timbre sound textures, drones, crashing noise, digitalia, field recordings, turntables, static electric atmospheres, samplers sine waves and location recordings, all used in free improvisation to create fragmented, eclectic and relentless yet focused and massive collages. 'A-sia' might remind you of mixture between the hi-speed electronics of Belgian irregularities scratch pet land and the microsound-turntablism alà Otomo Yoshihide or Martin Tétreault, 'b-sia' begins like 'Pop' defined by the Tochnit Aleph crew, but slowly between layers of distortions there rise sweet, Fenneszian melody as if they were re-arranged by Rudolf E.ber."
