MUSIC REVIEW BY Max Level, KFJC 89.7FM

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Drums and keyboards-everything played by Icasiano, a mainstay of the Seattle free music scene. There are two "suites" here and within each suite the pieces tend to track together. Several of the tracks have repeating-in some cases one could say relentless-drum patterns, augmented with simple keyboard/synth melodies, drones, and sounds. Field recordings pop up occasionally, some of them including voices. I really enjoyed Track 3, a jagged piece with free drumming alongside bursts of what seem to be backward sounds. The thing that I probably like most about this CD is that I don't quite understand what's going on and can only listen and wonder what will come next. Icasiano's work occupies a section of the musical universe that you probably didn't even know was there. I didn't.
