HAT MELTER – Unknown Album


Hat Melter is a strangely conceived quartet: Jeff Klatt and Matt Turner, Jon Mueller and Steve Hess – two celloists and two percussionists. Their music is pretty strange, too: a mixture of improvised settings, looping segments, long moments of almost complete silence, contrary motions, sudden awakenings and abandon of any conventional way of playing. The final result is a record where the single timbral voices are almost forgotten, put apart in favor of a comprehensive “total design”. Graced with intelligence and a pretty developed sense of humor, “Unknown album” doesn’t fail to create interest and it’s meant to open new listening paths even to the usual guests of new music parties.
