"Scree is a record that reveals a musician at the height of his creativity. Everything that follows will sound different, can only sound different. Of course, Scree is the result of radical improvisation (and also in this sense everything later sounds different, since it is a matter of real-time compositions that are bound up with the moment of performing and are per se not repeatable). Seldom has one heard guitar improvisation that is so thoroughly worked through, so fast, so virtuous and dense and so well thought-out -- and if it's a matter of this -- so withdrawn. Seldom has one heard improvised music that is so well-rounded and thereby so radically bound to the instant in which it is played. Olaf Rupp has played with Paul Lovens, Tony Buck, Joe Williamson, Uli Jenneßen, Paul Lovens, Johannes Bauer, Thomas Lehn, Wolfgang Fuchs, Aki Takase, Butch Morris, Aleks Kolkowski, Harri Sjöström, Stephan Mathieu ... and for four years he has been intensively grappling with solo playing."
