After the runaway success of the Akita / Gustafsson / O’Rourke LP , ‘one bird two bird’ (DeMEGO 022), Swedish sax legend Mast Gustafsson returns to Editions Mego with another storming collaboration. Now resident in Vienna he teamed up with experimental artists dieb13 and Martin Siewert for a live and studio session. (Fake) The Facts is the result.
A dense fog of sound coming from all directions, but whereas the general impetus is a full on attack the trio do find restraint to create a deeper dynamic and open the spaces between the walls of noise.
