The Hafler Trio's brand new studio album named "Cleave: 9 Great Openings" being released as "Part The First" of the Trilogy
("Part The Second" was released in spring 2003 on Die Stadt and "Part The Third" will follow in autumn 2003 on Nextera!).
CD album is packed in "deluxe" embossed paper wallet with special transparent wraparound!
"Cleave: Nine Great Openings" is the first new CD release by h3o since 'hljodmynd' released in 2000 on Die Stadt (though the material on this was already recorded in 1995).
Cleave is a 62 minutes piece which slowly changes, with a very wide sound, low, and very resonant.
It's *almost* ambient or 'meditative music' with very special atmosphere, and a few suprises - becuase maybe...it isn't!
Source material for this album was recorded in 1999 for Andrew's friend's wedding ceremony in Nepal!
We are sure that many people / fans eagerly await this new work (trilogy) by Andrew Mark McKenzie which is truely exceptional!
This set of recordings shows that there's life in the old dog yet and it isn't quite buried...!
