    He actually controlled the planes with his cello. Kinda like Herbie Hancock on the cover of Thrust. You definitely didn't want to be on the barrel end of a heavy down bow.

    This is well worth reading (PDF download)
    I'll have to look into Graettinger's work then. I've had City Of Mirrors on CD for quite a few years now, I'm gonna have to find some time in the next couple days to listen to it again.

    ^ Quite possibly my single fave Acrux. Nothing ever sounded like this, not even within the more obscure realms of math-rock. To have music as "insect-swarm-like" in tonal texture come out as large-sounding and melodic as this is an enormous feat. That 28-minute tour-de-force is a complete monster if I ever heard one; it just goes on and further on, always something new, always something bigger and more surprising and welcome.

    It sounds pretty decent.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    For some reason the flying double bass from Dolphy's Out There comes to mind.
