Jean- Philippe Gross - Curling (mini CD Eich)


A short piece that lasts less than 23 minutes and comprises of ominous drones and other such tempered wheezes set to a location recording of what sounds like the curling tournament of the title. Itís quite effective and assumes many different shades whilst recontextualised like this, but I still canít help feeling most such music tends to get lost in a vacuum once itís been listened to several times. I have no idea what the significance is of the curling, too. Is this recording tacked on for its own sake or is there some greater meaning? One thing is for sure: no amount of listens will reveal any answer. Perhaps thatís the point? RJ
