“Sticking largely to fingerstyle acoustic guitar, Parish's controlled and tightly parameterized improvising stands in stark contrast to Nakatani's varied and unpredictable sound experiments. While his playing in the Ahleuchatistas is highly electric and aggressive, here, Parish seems almost meditative. Taking cues from artists such as John Fahey, Robbie Basho, and Jack Rose, he weaves a rich and unending tapestry of harmonic variety around Nakatani's radical sound craft. An innovator in the art of bowed metals-gongs, cymbals and such- Nakatani's work on Anatomy of a Moment only occasionally resembles percussion-as-we-know-it. The method in the pair's madness is the juxtaposition of two wildly different approaches to improvisation.” -Dave Wayne, All About Jazz

"Shane Perlowin [Parish] is the guitar player from the wonderful and scrupulous Asheville instro-rock band Ahleuchatistas. Based in Pennsylvania, percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani animates a world of chimes, gongs, bells and snares, constructing widescreen and incredibly detailed soundscapes with his drum kit. Their debut duo record, Anatomy of a Moment, is a study in finesse and attentiveness, with two masterful players sidestepping egos to listen instead for relationships." —Grayson Haver Currin/IndyWeek
