FAINT is a project that explores two extremes of musical practice: free improvisation and composition for fixed medium. The trio formation with pianist/composer Pedro Rebelo, percussionist/composer Steve Davis and saxophonist Franziska Schroeder was born out of an impromptu encounter of the three musicians at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This double CD presents improvised recordings together with 19 short electroacoustic pieces by Pedro Rebelo which are exclusively based on these recordings. We would like to thank everyone at SARC for their enthusiasm and support, in particular Chris Corrigan, Michael Alcorn, and Pearl Young. This CD was made possible through the generous support of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

Reviews/Distribution
“Now this is an interesting album” (The Watchful Ear)
“The potion is guaranteed to cause instant addiction to the knowledgeable ones, for this is probably the best Creative Sources record of the 2007-08 biennium. High-class stuff all over the place, very highly recommended.” (Massimo Ricci (Touching Extremes))
