O’s Notes: We Are Falling is a rather different take, purposely so. Drummer Asaf Sirkis seeks to let the music speak, entering a space that has yet to be explored. The music has more structure than free jazz yet is similarly eclectic. Sirkis also plays keyboards and Steve Lodder (keyboards) and Mike Outram (g) make up his band, Inner Noise. The music is kind of eerie and spacey – the songs are appropriately titled – “Another Being”, “Galactic Citizen” and “The Bottomless Pit Surrounding You” are examples. This will appeal to selected audiences.
