Third release of startling art-song by this enigmatic trio. Working in an area completely devoid of identifiable US/Anglo "folk" influence, the Quag's mix of collage and roughly-styled human performance is full of dramatic contrast. Most tracks house Dorothy Geller's voice and pointillistic nylon string guitar in a thick embrace of droning sound. Much of the CD was recorded in the UK, where guests Helena Espvall-Santoleri (Cello), Sharon Krauss (Whistle and Clarinet) and Simon Wickham-Smith (Electronics) added their substantial input to the record. Touches such as Wickham-Smith's understated electronics on "A Father's Vision" and Espvall-Santoleri's dark bowing on most cuts redefine FQ's signature sound - away from the percussive and jarring avant explosions heard on Tropic of Barren and Caught In Unknowing and toward a more subtle, refined brand of expression. 7 Tracks, 54 Minutes.
