Max Loderbauer lends his unique interpretive skills to the master recordings for the Brightbird album (AMAC 715CD, 2018) by João Paulo Esteves Da Silva, Mário Franco, and Samuel Rohrer. With "Trusting Heart/Cosmos", Loderbauer builds up a tactile tension between rhythmic certainty and sharp-angled, de-tuned, and occasionally scrambled instrumentation. For "Noontide", Loderbauer switches to a more focused and streamlined idiom with an uncanny ease, riding along steady waves of sequencer patterning and silvery, resonant shiverings. Reverberating, holographic piano again provides the tonal center here, and the notes ring with a forward-thinking optimism not far removed from classics of the krautrock era.
