Chinese Noise Improv MP3s

The Chinese netlabel posted, back in March, four live performances by the duo Herba Abri, featuring Ronez (aka 周沛) on “amplified qin qin/scissors/pedals/design” and Mini Mok on “theremin mini/pedals.” The pieces are each rigorous excursions through feedback, whirligig tomfoolery, erratic effects-mongering, and riffs that venture toward toward rock’n’roll, but never fully congeal into songs. The sound quality and stereo separation are excellent, and you’ll feel like you’re right there in the studio with Mok and Ronez. Not available for streaming, but as Zip archives of either MP3 or FLAC files at More on Ronez at
