Artist: William Hooker
Title: Shamballa - Duets with Thurston Moore and Elliott Sharp
The fusion between Thurston Moore and William Hooker is connected like a process of nature. Noise, feedback and distortion inspire tireless drum onslaughts. The relationship is beautifully successful, listening-reacting. The drums are texture and voice and certainly transcend the idea of a mere back beat. Undulating waves relentlessly crashing onto the sand. The guitar work is the wind and air moving the waves. Elliot Sharp's attack is more cyber-mechanical, switches and vibrating wires. The guitar as electronic instrument, charged magnets. The duet builds a sense of technology, wild and with a precision that nature also maintains in the Moore duets.
