Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders & The LSO Promises
In a single, continuous composition, this record is a journey painted by Sam Shepherd, who transcends through Pharoah Sanders' saxophone. The central theme, whose notes are played in unison by synthesizer, piano and harpsichord, is repeated throughout the piece from beginning to end, incorporating some variations over time. Shortly thereafter, Sanders' tenor saxophone fills the screen with atmospheric passages that heighten the dream effect. The string arrangements, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra by the hand of conductor Sally Herbert, appear in this instrumental canvas between Shepherd and Sanders as a backdrop, but without ever falling into the ignoble.rPromises is a masterpiece that unites two musicians from different generations. With classical, jazz and electronic nuances, the album is essentially ambient, with abstract and minimalist qualities. Nothing is randomly created like an improvisation done over the knee, the saxophone functioning as a brush that perfectly paints the artist's vision. An authentic celebration of the juxtaposition of sound and silence with a sophisticated musicality that transcends every listening.

The instrumental tracks here are surprisingly good, with Animal Waves being an ambient improv jam with guitar solos clearly influenced by Frank Zappa. But the rest is the usual CAN's late 70's easy disco stuff.
Can Flow Motion
Besides the selling-out stuff, the ten-minute title track is actually very good.

Akira Yamaoka iFUTURELIST
Yamaoka's debut solo record sounds nothing like his usual works. It features robotic german vocals, mostly techno music with some pop and rock tracks, english and japanese lyrics. Then there's "Maria", a sweet ballad with piano and strings. This's supposed to be a just-for-fun album as it's introduced "Ich bin Akira Yamaoka von der Futurelist Party."

Interesting album, but too fragmented.
John Zorn The Urmuz Epigrams
Aside from a few nice musical moments mainly the recurrent piano theme, this album is more of a sound collage of animals squeals, water dropping, Zorn screaming and annoyingly blowing woodwind instruments. That said, this album's so fragmented and repetitive that ends up being an unessential listen.
