Chris Watson Weather Report
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: Touch
Chris Watson's Weather Report comprises three 18-minute tracks assembled from recordings of natural phenomena in Kenya, Scotland and Iceland. In a change of tack from his previous releases (Outside The Circle Of Fire and Stepping Into The Dark), the former member of Cabaret Voltaire has blended and edited his recorded material into location-specific collages. Unlike Matmos, Nymphomatriarch, Sonic Catering Band et al, Watson makes no attempt to displace his found sounds from their original context, but the shrewd and subtle way he deploys his forceful authorial hand is an effective conceit that yields absorbing and vivid results.
