Eddie Prévoat & John Butcher

Egg Farm, Fukaya Saitama, Japan -  2010.

Butcher and Prévost are not the kind of musicians to turn in substandard performances, but even by their high standards this is a remarkably compelling disc. The recording renders the protesting metallic wail of Prévost's tam-tam and Butcher's disparate whispers, squelches, and immaculately joined multiphonic excursions as vivid as sunlight in the tropics.

Eddie Prévost

Eddie Prévost and John Butcher first shared the stage at Derek Bailey's 1990 Company Week. 15 years later they played in duo at the East London Foundry and have since collaborated in many contexts.
As well as concerts in Europe their duo has made memorable visits to Japan and Brazil and a trio with Guillaume Viltard regulary played in London before the bassist’s return to France.
Other concerts and recordings include music with John Tilbury, Christian Wolff, Ute Kanngeisser, N.O. Moore, Rohan de Saram, Jennifer Allum and John Edwards.

They play and experiment with abstract, constant-shifting dynamics as a means to share ideas and doubts, feed each other’s with an invigorating energy, release the torturing tension, suggest a vivid, cinematic drama and offer compassion and tender yet sober comfort. And all performed with rich, beautiful colors and engaging elegance.
