It’s hard to believe this release was recorded 20 years ago, as it has a healthy freshness to the material.  Former drummer of the new wave band Japan Steve Jansen collaborates with keyboardist Claudio Chianura and is ably supported by guitarist Roberto Zorzi and synth player Piero Chianura.  The work is a collaboration where the quartet improvise to the Dziga Vertov film Man With A Movie Camera [German: Kinoapparatom], a classic of Soviet filmmaking.

In places, it sounds similar to Industrial noise; in others, like a more playful version of Rock-In-Opposition.  It’s a solid release, though I wonder if there is live footage of this performance available.
