DONOVAL & FIALA – “VI”

“VI” is a collaboration between the Slovakian-London based Adam Badí Donoval (warm winters ltd, ACR) and Jakub Fiala (Theydon Boys). Following their work on a small-run cassette, the two met again to explore tape loops, gentle guitar work and sound manipulation through various electronics. I like the idea of the two sitting down and starting to play as they describe, “without ceremony”. This first-thought-best-thought transcription from brain to tape really pays off as each musician creates new space in each looped passage and new movement etched into air.
