Prog Reviewer
4 stars A live display of focused/experimental/music/noise mutations which turn out to be as daring and uncompromised as enticing and surprising.

This unnamed 38 minutes composition, divided into 2 parts, "BSP Live Series/2010.11.16 - LesInstant Chavires, Paris" beholds many remarkable features alongside its apparent economy in instruments and performers, one will suspect, when reading the credits as Aidan Baker takes full responsibility of all recorded sounds and only guitar as instrument.

Apparently, as told, but expect a full gallery of electronic/acoustic sound possibilities (including bright but well measured percussive elements, here and there) by the addition of loops which eventually grow outside themselves to become massive entities conjuring hypnotic and raw to the bone structures whose guiding lights are the well threaded melodic lines which as always are the real deal of this (and any) release.

This noise related, electronic, "symphonic" like project keeps one's attention hooked from start to finish due to the before mentioned attribute. And of course Aidan Baker's musical language has many influences but sounds like none but himself and on this one extremely charged!

In between the exact borders of Krautrock, Progessive Electronic and pure and explosive Avant Garde.

****4 PA stars
