Startle the Echoes
The Wachsmann / Hutchinson Duo has existed since the 1980's. It grew out of the influential Chamberpot ensemble that started in the early 70’s, and which recorded on Bead Records. Since then the Duo has been performing in a wide variety of venues and at times in extended groups.
The music in this recording is taken from three recent London concerts. The six tracks contain music that is wide ranging, provocative, haunting often with juxtapositions of unlikely and seemingly unreconcilable elements that include the tonal, the abstract, the absurd, the funny, and the sublime. Sometimes with stunning disparity the music tells an unusual story.
