“Dervish” is Markus Reuter & Ian Boddy's most challenging studio collaboration to date. Recorded in England & Austria, the album contains a guest appearance by King Crimson’s drummer Pat Mastelotto. Inspired in part by the musical theories of 20th Century composer Olivier Messiaen, there's a terse angularity to the compositions whose unexpected textures feature the appearances of a string quartet & a recorder player. Atmospheric loops, cross-picking arpeggios, unresolved sequences that hang in the air, and some metallic edged soloing that carves its own unique space. All add extra layers of momentum and tension to a music already brimming with invention and mystery. You may have heard Boddy and Reuter before but you've not heard them sound like this.
