Volcano Radar’s “Electro Parables/Electro Parábolas” (PYR164) reviewed by S. Victor Aaron

“The fascinating thing about them is that the alien, synth-like sounds produced are hand made from real instruments but obviously through the magic of MIDI and various other effects, the two are able to create these space age sonorities that are highly improvisational, but in a group improv sense. It might be hard to pick out what instruments are being played for a lot of the sounds heard on this album (and I won’t attempt to make any guesses here), but Miller and Barilari kind of made that unessential, anyway. They strive for a unique collective din, the means by which it’s achieved isn’t nearly as interesting as the end result.”
