Tidewrack is the debut full-length from The Knot, the Toronto-based cello duo of Tilman Lewis and Nick Storring. Storring should be familiar to some thanks to his wonderful solo recordings on labels like Orange Milk, Entr’acte and Scissor Tail. This duo is an altogether different beast. Storring himself describes The Knot best: “Emerging in summer 2006, with allegiance to both form and freedom, they have since embarked on sonic explorations that draw on various folk traditions and experimental musics. The pair love to bend the instrument’s lyricism, not so much employing extended techniques as but an array of audacious contra-techniques: preparations/ apparati (practice mutes, hair-clips, clamps, wine corks, mallets, egg beaters, plectra etc.). They still, however, permit the instrument's natural beauty to have its place. These sonorities are channeled and combined into single unified textures, and everything from improvised heterophony, to stark contrast.”
