descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Polycephaly was recorded in July 2021 by saxophonist Camila Nebbia and Tomomi Kubo on the Ondes Martenot. They first met the day they started recording at Tomomi's studio in Barcelona. Each of their opening riffs was like a self-introduction after which their musical conversation became instantly excited. Camila used the tenor sax and a loop pedal. She played as she felt. Sometimes, she used her voice. Tomomi used an Ondes Martenot and a loop pedal. She surrendered herself to the waves of Camila's sounds and enjoyed the unique sounds of the Ondes Martenot and the saxophone as they blended together. These recordings are totally improvised; however, they weave one mystical story with their rich musicality. We hope that you'll enjoy their rich sound waves."-TripTick Tapes
