“Gateway is the handle for the duo aktions of Jason Filer and Tim Gick, core members of the ever-(r)evolving inzane improv collective, Crazy Doberman. Summed-Up-Sounds in Process, the duo’s third release, borrows from American philosopher Justus Buchler’s idea of “summed-up-selves in process” and the notion of “a moving union of seeking and receiving, of forward propulsion and patient absorption.” For this release, the duo broadened their standard improvisational practices by first pairing a wider range of instrumentation together: accordion and jaw harp, typewriter and sax, fender rhodes and clarinet. These initial improvisations, recorded onto tape loops and/or fed through Filer’s modular synthesizer, then provided the structural backbone for the duo to further improvise over. The results are truly brilliant and unquestioningly bonkers: clattering loops mix with sax squeals that flow into enchanting clarinet melodies that dance around throbbing electronic pulses that segue into more animated interactions of vocal mumblings and other unclassifiable sounds. The editing and production work here is flawless, with two side-long pieces flowing seamlessly together to form one impressive whole. There may be fewer hands and less breath involved, but we feel confident in asserting that Summed-Up-Sounds in Process is as equally nuanced and as potent as the Crazy Doberman crew is when they lock into full group-mind.” – Round Bale Recordings
