CD Review – Street Art
Sunday Herald Sun, Sept 21 2008
After an acclaimed debut in 2002 with Telling Tales, Murphy’s Law is back on the streets, toting a string quartet and Jamshid “Jumps” Khadiwala (of Cat Empire fame) on turntables.
Bassist Tamara Murphy leads this unlikely ensemble in a tribute to street artists that explores electronic techniques (delay, sampling, looping) with improvised acoustic music. With its energy, undercurrents and restless urgency, it effectively evokes street life. Murphy’s compositions reflect city art’s haste and impermanence, recalling glimpses, echoes and snippets of conversation in a colourful journey that can be gritty as well as delicate.
Nashua Lee’s guitar works superbly, either throbbing with life or as a muted backdrop to Julien Wilson’s saxophone and Shannon Barnett’s trombone. Sampled voices break like thoughts into serene sax on Street Art Part 3, with filigree strings as a garnish.
Murphy has inspired a wildly successful integration of classical, jazz and electronica.
