BORDREUIL/ROWDEN -HOLLOW, C30 (No Rent Records, 2017)
Scathing music favoring long, corrosive atonalities and fleeting noise walls. For fans of Morton Feldman and Richard Ramirez alike.
Leila Bordreuil and Zach Rowden met at a free jazz concert in 2015. Zach was wearing a Man is the Bastard bootleg T-shirt which acted as an icebreaker, and these two classically trained musicians started collaborating shortly after. “Hollow” is a culmination Bordreuil and Rowden diverse influences, ranging from improvised music, harsh noise, cold wave, existentialism and a common obsession for Spectral Music. All tracks are live improvisations on cello and double-bass, with no effects pedals and no cuts and pastes.
