Guitarist Harvey Valdes has a reputation for genre bending, and his debut trio album, PointCounterPoint, is seven tracks of rhythmically driven, countrapuntal action that draws from metal, jazz, atonality, noise and more. These angular tunes feature Sana Nagano on violin, Joe Hertenstein on drums, and Valdes on seven string guitar. Valdes’ intervallic writing creates a tapestry of consonance and dissonance that is grounded in odd time and syncopation. Valdes and Nagano weave atonal melodies into improvisations, while Hertenstein holds the trio tight in his pocket. Valdes’ heavy, distorted sound pulsates with urgency throughout this inspiring,
intelligent, and intense debut.
