Written by vocalist Brigitte Beraha for her highly acclaimed quartet Lucid Dreamers, ‘Blink’ is the band’s second album release. Partly composed and partly the result of improv sessions, the beautiful ‘Blink’ transcends jazz, and melds with electronics in a way that is reminiscent not just of Basil Kirchin and Steve Lacy’s late electronic fusion work, but also of Talk Talk and the solo work of Robert Wyatt, in its oceanic ambience, its plaintiveness, and its periodic gusts of squally wildness. ‘Blink’ – featuring Brigitte Beraha (voice/ electronics), George Crowley (reeds/ electronics), Alcyona Mick (piano/synth) and Tim Giles (drums/ electronics) – is a richly evocative album, yet so spare at times as to threaten to submerge into a blissful, natural silence, intense yet light as air, far reaching in its experimentalism, yet closely attuned to the workings of the human heart.
