ABOUT: Rather than trading in assertive attacks and torrents of vibrant rhythmic activity, the three works that make up the debut album of Montréal percussionist Noam Bierstone conjure rich and evocative environments consisting of elusive tones, metallic whispers, and fierce clangour. The disc features compositions by Hanna Hartman, Zeynep Toraman and Pierluigi Billone, the latter of whom Bierstone recorded for the Kairos imprint last year in his duo scapegoat. This album, Mani. Giacometti, was the winner of the prestigious Franco Abbiati prize. In addition to scapegoat, who has now toured on three continents, Bierstone is the co-founder of performance collective No Hay Banda, is a member of Architek Percussion, and has recorded with leading labels such as New Focus, Cantaloupe and NMC.
