AllMusic Review by

On an occasional basis for over a decade, Lauren Newton and Joëlle Léandre have teamed up for free improvisations. This live set has the adventurous yet warm wordless vocals of Newton interacting closely with Léandre's bass and sometimes her voice too. The nine improvisations have their scary and violent moments but in general are more accessible and witty than expected. Newton has a very flexible voice and Léandre has the ability on bass to echo her ideas when she is not challenging her. The results are quite stimulating.
