Recorded at the Music Gallery in Toronto in 2000, renowned ultra-improv duo Thomas Baker and Kye Marshall penetrate silence and normality with seemingly subdued yet powerful tinkles of musical notes.  Marshall also has functioned as a music psychotherapist, using the listening of music as a tool for transcending the mind and the resolution of mental issues.  It is amazing that this avant-garde music is completely improvised, as the feel seems structured.  Multiple listens provide different experiences, from relaxing to obscure jazz to pleasing classical enthusiasts, and is for those who like their music indefinable and open for interpretation.  (Baker Marshall Duo/Fusion III)
