In 2007 Voice of Eye ended their 12-year silence with 2 CD-R improvisation volumes: Emergence and Immersion.
The works were released for their European tour in editions of only 100 each and sold out fast.
Now those impossible-to-find, extremely limited releases are finally available on factory-pressed CD’s!
Old Europa Cafe of Italy has re-released Emergence &Immersion in a fine 2-CD 4 page full-color digifolder, re- mastered with a new bonus track, “Peacock Symphony”, offering 2 and a half hours of music.
Spontaneity and raw emotional expression punctuate and keen throughout. Although completely improvised, the music seems amazingly composed.
One can intuit that the musical re-uniting of this duo created a vortex in the worlds.
Wildness, beauty, humor, darkness, fear, horror, yearning, grief and vast spaciousness inhabit this mysterious lively music.
Herein one finds some of the source material for their recent live shows: “Immersion”, “Dark Ritual”, “The Gates of Oblivion”, “Free”.
A large array of instruments are used here including guitars, trombone, flutes, double-reeds, percussion, voices as well as Voice of Eye’s self-made instruments: Squawk Box, Bass-Thing, Jeemna, Thing and Thing-mini.
