Chris Cutler is one of the most expressive and daring percussionists of the 20th and 21st century. Solo is a 2002 offering by him the has a feel like very inventive Autechre with the progressive spin only Chris Cutler could give to the sound. This recording is not for a timid audience. Nor is it for the dance-heads... but it would be great to see some free expression dancers perform to this music. If you are expecting the Henry Cow sound or Live in Washington improv sound, this is NOT for you. If you are open to chancy, actually played synthetic percussion, definately get this CD! Awesome spin!

Chris Cutler is an important figure in rock music and modern art music in general. He is more than an excellent drummer. And he is more than an innovative drummer. With this album, he has completely rethought the instrument. It's like when they say it doesn't push the envelope, it throws it in the fire. This is Cutler's first solo release, but the sound isn't really so different from _Quake_, which he did with Thomas DiMuzio. The centerpiece in both cases is a bizarre orgy of improvised, electronically processed sounds from an acoustic kit, creating AMM-channelling drones. The difference is that Cutler does all the electronic alterations himself. I will share some of Chris Cutler's words from the liner notes, which explain the music here:

"There are no samples, pads or triggers, just acoustic drums amplified and modified with standard electronic processors; there's a table with a few tambours, a frying pan and an egg-slicer - also amplified --, a miscellaneous collections of sticks, brushes, screw-rods, beaters, violin bows, battery operated cocktail mixers, some ping pong balls, a fire bell and a massager. All this is run into a small 16 channel mixer and out through various standard pedals and guitar effects. That's it. Whatever you hear on this CD was made from these ingredients in real time, however unlikely that may seem. Occasionally there are snatches of other sounds, either from a Trigon Incantor - a circuit-bent Speak n' Spell modified by inventor Reed Ghazala, or snatches of CDs 00 at concerts I have a CD running silently so I can randomly introduce bursts into the mix . . . You'll notice I have a special fondness for sustained tones, layering and variable pitching; things we drummers miss in our regular instrument.

From his Henry Cow days, Chris Cutler has always been one of my favourite musicians, but I must admit that I bought this CD more out of curiosity than anything else, never expecting that an entire CD of nothing but electrically treated drums would be one that I would want to listen to very frequently. Well, I was wrong. Rather than being just an interesting experiment, this is totally successful and very satisfying pice of work indeed. True, it contains very little that you might find yourself whistling whilst digging your garden, but it completely engrosses, if you give it a chance. One of a select number of CDs that I expect to still be listening to with interest 40 years from now.
