        German experimentalist Ekkehard Ehlers pays tribute to some of his favorite artists with PLAYS. These sonic homages to musicians, writers and filmmakers may not bear much immediate resemblance to their subjects but approach these figures in fascinating ways. "Cornelius Cardew," for instance, has long organ tones above burbling percussion, while the second piece emcompasses a vast sonic space. "Hubert Fichte" starts off more abstract, even as some melodic hints filter in, and the second piece takes the opposite approach, as a guitar noodles all the way through. "John Cassavetes" delves into sustained cathedral-like tone, with the second piece loops a string chamber ensemble. The avant-garde comes to the fore with "Albert Ayler" as the first part collapses into jitters and cello, whereas the second part puts the jitters out front and lets the cello ease in later. "Robert Johnson" brings hints of the blues player's work into a chaotic composition, but the second part offers up a microhouse kick drum, more akin to his Auch alias. Interesting concept and execution overall.
