Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Powell's arresting Drempel combines jazz and the busy figuration of "new complexity" with witty fluency ... Andrew Poppy's "How the Hammer Felt" is scintillating, happy minimalism." - Sunday Times, London

This lively recording by the collective Noszferatu represents a cross-section of repertoire by some of the UK's best experimental composers - from the haunting minimalism of Howard Skempton's In Tandem and Andrew Poppy's How the Hammer Felt to the jazz-fuelled improvisation of Finn Peters' The Horses Screamed and the manic sampling of Dave Price's Lee's Game.

The album title: 'Let op! drempels' means 'Mind the ramp' in Dutch.
