Patrick Farmer THE WANDERING RHIZOME review

Vital Weekly 663 Frans De Waard

From the world of improvised electro-acoustic music. I don’t think I ever heard of The Wandering Rhizome, which is one Patrick Farmer. He plays here bass drum, large bamboo stem, four acoustic guitar pickups, microphone and milk frother. Quite a curious piece of electro acoustic sound emerges from the speakers, with occasional rattling sounds and what seems to be lots of lo-fi hiss sound. Lots of silence is built in this piece. But then sound gets sometimes picked up again, and the volume increases substantially. It hoovers that fine balance between almost silence and almost noise. Quite a nice piece of what I believe live action music for a few objects.
