LUIGI ARCHETTI / BO WIGET - Low Tide Digitals II
[Rune Grammofon, www.runegrammofon.com]


It's very rare to see musicians from outside of Norway make a record for Rune Grammofon. The people running the Norwegian label were so thrilled about this Swiss duo's first release "Low Tide Digitals"; they decided to release the follow up as well. The duo - made up of Luigi Archetti on guitar and electronics and Bo Wiget on cello and electronics - are affected by just about every category of musical thought in the book. Nothing is foreign to them - from ramblings of laptop generated sounds, to the purity of well-recorded instruments, to ambient landscapes and finally to composed walls of sound. It's all fair game for the duo, which is a refreshing change from artists too worried about occupying other people's musical mentalities to actually do something new. The last few numbers are reminiscent of Terry Riley. The same thick drone-like quality about them ensures they stick in your head for a long, long time. Drones that escape from the speakers are highly addictive. Even the noisier passages - such as "Stuck 15" - are enjoyable and not once do they become intrusive or blatantly anarchic. You'll want to revisit them time and again.
