A kind of intimate scrapbook of the startling collaboration between the techno maestro Moritz Von Oswald, and this long-standing musical collective based in Bishkek devoted to the roots music of Kyrgyzstan, Ordo Sakhna. Loose-leaved but balanced, lucid, and intimate, it sets out from stunning a cappella and virtuosic komuz and kylak, mouth harp and traditional percussion: not field, but expert studio recordings, using marvelous vintage microphones, made over several days in Berlin. Further, a few of these are deftly treated by Moritz, using Reichian de-synced double-tracking, and discreet effects. Also includes two ten-minute dubs: a deadly, signature Berlin steppers, plus its version; and an echoing, mystical drum session, recorded live on stage in Bishkek. And a side-long, dream-like summation: the locomotive, oceanic, clangorous, dread "Facets". Ravishing, rooted, searching music; beautifully presented.
