RECUERDE: Esters Sea / Muddy Shallows

By Bruce Morley
Rohan Evans has long been both patron and participant in the free improv scene at Auckland’s legendary Wine Cellar. When he’s not busy promoting, curating or recording, Evans is just as likely to be involved in performance with the Vitamin S collective, on laptop and/or wresting new and unusual sounds from his bass guitar. He has also built up an impressive recorded archive of the Vitamin S free improv Mondays, which I hope will eventually be released on record. Meantime, this album from Recuerde, Evan’s recording alias, is as good a representative of the genre as you’ll find. Recorded live at the Wine Cellar, ‘Esters Sea / Muddy Shallows’ finds him working with bass, guitar, cardboard box, vocals and effects, creating a continuously shifting, brooding soundscape that, on first contact, conceals more than it reveals. Occasional voices are buried deep, washes of noise threaten and retreat, and seemingly abrupt edits offer no respite – instead, they immediately unleash new sounds. Dealing mostly in dark, Penderecki-like material, this brief, intense album not only engages the emotions as it unfolds in the moment, it also rewards repeated listening.
