ABRAHAMS & CLARE COOPER, CHRIS - GERM STUDIES FOR GUZHENG & DX7 (2CD)


"Chris Abrahams (DX7) and Clare Cooper (guzheng). "198 scratches, itches and ailments. Germ Studies is the inspired pairing of renowned Sydney pianist Chris Abrahams, and Berlin based Australian harpist Clare Cooper ­ but if you're expecting a harmonic polyphony of harp and piano you'll be shocked by the alien landscapes that span the 198 tracks of this double disk. The unlikely combination of 1980s Japanese synth and 1380's Chinese harp creates an ambiguous and ambitious music. Although stemming from a language borne of contemporary electro-acoustic improvisation ­ Germ Studies approaches the path from a very different angle ­ filled with wonder-ful, ecstatic and unexpected joys. ."
