...to make music as splendiferous as the third Mice Parade album, Mokoondi? We hear the increased influence of Eastern harmonics, the charming tones of the cheng (Chinese harp) lending a strangely hypnotic effect throughout, while a shift towards African beats provides a new aspect of polyrhythmic momentum in the Mice Parade lexicon.
The gorgeous melodies and complex rhythm clusters of old are still intact, augmented by the rawness of improvisation - in both the recording and mixing process - as only one fluid take appears on most tracks. The opening piece, Open Air Dance? evolves through three parts from gentle, acoustic improv through to wild, driving, live-electro dance music, setting the scene for the album as a whole. A lightness of touch, a spirit of adventure and an intuitive undercurrent of tangential change give Mokoondi a genuine warmth and humanity.
