REVIEW: Windowbox Ensemble’s “Will Of The Wood”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Windowbox Ensemble play chamber music, at least that was the premise I was given upon reading a description of Will Of The Wood, which is to suggest the will of the music is within the instruments made out of wood (or something like that). Considering some of the other things I’ve heard on the Clinical Archives label, I expected this to be some kind of mind-expanding electronic or experimental presentation. Instead it’s chamber music, sometimes incredibly sparse, other times with light accompaniment. But it’s a brilliant recording nonetheless.

What I liked is that at times it could be really romantic, yet for all I know these could be songs with a darker, more sinister purpose. Something in this makes me feel it is the former, but what do I know>
