"ARTE Quartett: Tim Berne (alto saxophone); Marc Ducret (acoustic guitar); David Torn (electric guitars, loops, sonic redistribution). The Sevens is Tim Berne's most explicitly 'compositional' statement in some time. The album's core, a pair of through-composed movements performed by the ARTE saxophone quartet, could serve as an apotheosis of chamber writing in the Tim Berne vein. 'Repulsion' features four melodies (or is it one melody in four voices?), variously in dialogue or in chorus. Moving through a range of tonal colors, the piece reflects both Berne's fondness for friction and his less-celebrated sensitivity. In fact, certain sections sound almost wistful, as Berne cloaks his dissonances in subtle shadows."
