Never having worked with each other prior to the first session and considering there are no re-takes and/or edits, it is quite an accomplished feat. The sessions, which will be edited and used as inspiration for a more structured project, with an added focus on songwriting, showcase the organic sound and chemistry that Mr. Santora and Mr. Garrepy have together. Thus, being a truly improv-inspired recording and an accurate presentation of their attention deficit, the pieces bring the listener across many ideas, genres and styles.
Being a Blogcritic, this is where I have to end my biased review (for the first time if I do say so myself) and point out where this work hits the proverbial wall. What I mean is that because this project is solely guitar and drums with the intention on creating a "Beautiful Havoc," you can only cover so much ground before you have to introduce editing, effects and other fillers. Plus, I feel that this improvisation leaves little room for the traditional "song" and may leave the listener without the original emotion that connected them to these sessions in the first place.
All in all, this union represents a great time for musicians. A great time for aspiring artists to pay very little to record with professional equipment (Jamspot). A great time for The Great Unknown to leave his or her mark on the music community.
