Composer & multi-instrumentalist Ashley Paul dropped by WFMU to play a mesmerizing set of solo music drawn from fragile folk forms and introspective experimental meanderings. Her one-woman arsenal includes voice, sax, guitar, various bells, bowed cymbals, warbly cassettes, etc. all adding up to songs that are patient, sparse and tense in a way quite unlike anything else. Ashley's gripping LP Line the Clouds is out on the REL label.
Couldn't listen to the whole thing... This `artist`, and I use that term loosely, sounds like they are using the instruments to try and do something other than make music! Masturbate, perhaps! Using them as weapons...to beat, torture and mutilate small animals, perhaps! Does this woman suffer from some sort of a mental disorder, or what?!!?
