The partnership of Carla Hallett and Robert Minden explores an allusive world of found sounds, invented instruments and song. Musical saws, waterphones, toy piano, tuned glass bottles, children’s toys, theremin and found objects create their distinctive sound, cinematic and evocative, lyrical and unexpected enveloping the spare intimacy of Hallett’s vocals.
Their music suggests a curious acoustic soundscape, like a folk music from an invented world, sometimes melodic, sometimes percussive, microtonal and not; setting the stage for a heightened experience of resonance and the images that natural sounds awaken.
“We continue to be drawn to a diverse universe of luxurious acoustic sound”
“There is a Zen-like sense of poise to the music.”Alexander Varty, The Georgia Straight,
