“Certain musicians names can speak for themselves, before even a note of music has been played. Their reputations proceed them, although of course there will also be those ignorant of both reputation and name. David Maranha – solo or with Osso Exotico – explores the territories opened up half a century ago by John Cale and Tony Conrad. Z’ev is the grandmaster of industrial/ tribal percussion. The fusion they create together is a magma of movement and stasis before which only legless cripples will remain motionless.” Jérôme Noetinger / Metamkine.
