about

From soothing moments of calm reflection to jagged swipes at the psyche, the collective voices of HUMI form textures, moods, improvisation and formal compositions into a cohesive, expressive musical language. Beyond the confines of genre, there is an eloquent, spellbinding quality here -- arising synergestically, as two seasoned, risk-taking players go exploring. Bold, adventurous strokes create new sonic landscapes, as the musicians explore one another while following where the music leads.

"... A strange and wonderful confluence of modernity, scientific experimentation, and futuristic vision, this may very well be Hugh Hopper's most challenging recording date since his epic 1984, and a coming out for the intriguing ideas proffered by Cawkwell." - Michael Nastos, All Music Guide/Billboard.com

With an emphasis on atmosphere and color, Dune is the type of experimentation that illustrates Hopper's enduring vitality. Subtle, exotic and eloquent: don't expect anything obvious or remotely cliché from Hugh Hopper (Soft Machine, Soft Machine Legacy) and Yumi Hara Cawkwell. This classic release represents free jazz at its most diverse, colorful and spontaneous.
