Review by admireArt
4 stars A dark drone like mass.

As I have stated somewhere along these PA pages, I am a Bill Laswell buff, therefore anything that has his name on gets my full attention. John Zorn is no stranger to nobody, less to Mr. Laswell, they have met more than once.

David Chaim Smith, in this 2014 "The Dream Membrane", is the glue that holds both master musician´s skills. The whole musical concept derives from his texts and images, so its "field day" for both musicians to indulge in their well known musical composition talents and emerge as a perfectly balanced team.

John Zorn is given full space to take matters into his hands and explode freely, for real, his wind-works virtuosity and from scratch he builds up to high eerie altitudes.

Bill Laswell (sadly missing in PA) is, as everybody knows, highly creative, always proposing new musical directions and unobtrusive when needed. Yet always there with his astounding Bass guitars and Atmospheres to play along with the crooning voice and the delirious Sax player in this project.

As far as the music goes, I can assure to most or not that "average" prog-audiophiles, that this drone like mass will leave you enlightened in some very "Dark" and novel ways, without playing the quiet cliched "Devil" worshipping music, which as far as me, has become a repetitive joke.

****4 PA stars.
