Comprised of double-bassist Max Luthert and saxophonist Duncan Eagles, Million Square create swirling, hyper-complex compositions that pull inspiration from Coletrane as much as they do from Autechre. The glitch-heavy / post-IDM electronics and instrumentation are processed in such a way that the digital and acoustic worlds fold in on themselves in such a way to erase distinctions between the two. “Pallas” is a high-yield composition, not just because of the novel pairing of double-bass x saxophone x electronics but because the duo are able to pull it off with precise execution and first-take excitement.
