ERGODOS Day 6: Morla

We were back to the Unitarian Church for this one. Morla are a trio (sax, guitar, drums, plus electronics and televisions) playing music that seems to come form the world of jazz. Like with Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, having them play in a church as part of a weirdo contemporary music festival did create odd juxtapositions. That said, their music seemed a bit more experimental than normal jazz, using electronics and stuff like that more than is usual.

I found them a bit slow to get going… their early pieces did not seem to have much to them, but technical problems may be a factor here. I did like the long piece that reminded me in part of Ravel's Bolero. The penultimate piece, a rather drum heavy little number, and the fairly straight down the line closer were also rather enjoyable.
