In a series rife with inspired collaborations between the old & new guards, here's possibly the most sensible one yet, pairing the 70s / 80s French "New Age" sax-voice-synth-drone titan Ariel Kalma with contemporary Brooklyn-based voice-loop-drone & Modular Synthesizer whiz Robert A.A. Lowe.
Their shared stylistic ground should be immediately evident & the results of Robert's time spent in Ariel's rural Australian enclave has yielded not just a fine album of music - updating Kalma's Revox-extended Soprano Sax spec to contemporary modes via Lowe's Eurorack & delay-pedal modes - but a proper documentary, "Sunshine Soup," included on a DVD inside.
