As Cunningham enters on sax, the atmosphere begins to rise; the layers of smooth tonal sax soon move into a shredding solo. The track’s intensity reaches a peak as Cunningham shreds on sax, and Rory O’Gorman matches this perfectly through busy drum fills and lightening-fast grooves. The pair bounce off one another in an electric moment of improvisation - although some of Cunningham’s choices are very experimental, the effect is extremely stimulating rather than off-putting. Suddenly, everything drops out and just the sound of the sax can be heard. Cunningham has manipulated the saxophone electronically, so that it almost sounds like a voice is singing as the piece closes. ‘Wax Werk’ is truly atmospheric, and an extremely compelling listen.
