    Keiji Haino + Jean Francois Pauvros – Y

    Keiji Haino + Jean Francois Pauvros - Y

    This year 2000 CD from France fixes Keiji Haino up with French avant guitarist Jean Francois Pauvros, who, like Haino, has been working for three decades now, and percussionist Francois Causse. Why he is given lesser billing is beyond me, as he plays on many of these tracks. This album is full of gently floating freedom atmospherics of a most dim and misty hue—the perfect soundtrack to blast out into your front yard next Halloween. The glacial pace picks up at times, even rocking out for a short while in the middle. On the way from A to Z, we encounter bouts of Haino’s trademark solo vocal torture, collections of meandering sound flurries and areas of uncertain ambience. Overall, this is the perfect album for fans of clouded aquariums. The white cover sports a really blurry landscape photo with the two guitarists on the front. Then there’s the matter of this “Y” thing. Is it really the title of the album (it’s not on the spine), or just a graphic device? The world may never know.
