Shackleton & Zimpel - Primal Forms


Watching Shackleton’s music morph from dislocated bass experimentation into psychedelic electro-jazz
fusion has been a joy. This latest is his most cosmic set to date, following last year’s heady Tunes Of Negation
LP “Reach The Endless Sea” with an undulating trio of organic/electronic collaborations with Polish clarinet
virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist Waclaw Zimpel.
In a world seemingly hellbent on tearing itself apart, it makes perfect sense for two musicians from such
disparate backgrounds and disciplines to come together to create a new musical vernacular. Sam Shackleton,
returning on Cosmo Rhythmatic after his previous outing on the label as Tunes of Negation, and Polish
clarinetist/multi-instrumentalist Waclaw Zimpel have joined forces. Their offering is a new album for the
label: three long tracks of spiritual introspection and ascensional energy. A work of unison and solidarity.
Both boasting a track record of successful collaborative projects, the two artists have united after being
introduced by mutual friends, in wake of a shared interest in minimalism and a broad set of influences rooted
in different musical traditions. Joining Zimpel’s demanding multi-layered experience in Avant-garde jazz
with Shackleton’s mathematical, esoteric lyricism, the pair have used all the tools at their disposal, aiming at
a new form of ritual trance music. This fierce fusion of styles brings out the very best in each other, showing
unique clarity and force
