Barrett & Wassermann
Richard Barrett: live electronics
Ute Wassermann: voice, whistles
The extraordinarily wide spectrum of sonorities that this couple is able to produce is at one and the same time spectacular and hardly comprehensible, just like those heterogeneous scientific phenomena watched on Discovery that leave us intrigued but still totally ignorant at the end of the program.
Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
And the more we keep listening to this music (and it will keep drawing you back to the beginning again) the more what we think we recognise – bird songs, insect calls, electronic squawks, the momentary flash of a sampled instrument – the more, in fact, it becomes something new and beautiful to us.
Tim Rutherford-Johnson, The Rambler
