CHRISTIAN MARCLAY & OKKYUNG LEE / MY CAT IS AN ALIEN - From the Earth to the Spheres Vol. 6 CD
CD / A Silent Place
My Cat Is An Alien also share a split CD with Turntable-manipulator Christian Marclay and cellist Okkyung Lee, and it is their live collaboration “Rubbing” that opens the album. Full of disjointed sounds, scratches and stabs of cello, the piece is a rollercoaster of sonic experimentation, the two players complementing each other to create a wonderfully playful piece of music. After A tentative sounding opening “Beyond The Limit Of The Stars/Beyond The Limit Of The Grooves” Slowly begins to become denser and more claustrophobic as heavily distorted sound begin to engulf the music, until you are looking over your shoulder waiting for the aliens to arrive.
