Reflection And Passage is an often bluntly hissing and crudely baying take on the free jazz form from this Austrian two-piece. It utilizes amplified tenor sax & voice from Michael Fisher, and Valentin Duit on percussion/ drums. (...) As it moves on more hiss and brush edges are added, as well as moments of muffled/waving male voice chanting- which feels very primal, and slightly blues-tinged.
