EXCLUSIVE! FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE! (FMP SAJ-34) http://www.fmp-label.de/freemusicproduction/labelscatalog/saj34.html . An intense duet captured live before an enraptured audience in 1980. Malfatti and Miller are masters of their instruments, and extended technique is the order of the day here. The two men keep up a fairly furious level of interaction throughout, so sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the bumpy ride.
All compositions by Radu Malfatti and Harry Miller.
released December 15, 1981
"[Miller] is inventive and vital, whether playing arco, pizzicato or striking the bass body and/or bridge with his hands or mallets. Malfatti is into intense vocal blurred tone stylings for much of the set.... Their interactions throughout...are open and wide ranging. A dialogue between friends, that still have something meaningful to say to one another (and themselves)." -- Cadence
