"Lasse Marhaug's duo with John Hegre as the ongoing Jazzkammer was in The Netherlands to play the Earational festival and took up the occasion to record a session at the VPRO radio studio, now being released in what should be known by now as the John Peel sessions for underground music: Staalplaat's 'Mort Aux Vaches' series. Jazzkammer has one piece to play of sonic overload, building from scratch. A highpitched tone, scraping the surface with a contact microphone and from there building things up by adding layers of nasty frequencies. As the piece evolves, the high end techniques of laptop noise start to mingle with low-end electronics. This work, a straightforward, unedited recording is of course more uniform in approach than the edited work of Ratkje/Marhaug, and therefore a bit on the regular side of noise. But even at that, Jazzkammer on an ordinary day is way more interesting than many other noise heads on a good day."
