“Spear” is a short but very intense electroacoustic effort by Will Guthrie, who is equally accomplished in percussion and studio work. This 8’28″ piece is a war bulletin mixing David Jackman and Keith Rowe with “musique concrete” spicy condiments; noise, radio and charged stimulation maintain the level of vigilance very high – no time for deep breathing here, Guthrie is on the top of his bemusing irritability in doses that are proportional to his first class assembling skills.
