Mira Calix Skimskitta

Skimskitta is an elusive, ambitious work that's ultimately disappointing. The follow-up to 2000's more focused and accessible OneOnOne, Skimskitta possesses too many brief tracks that come off merely as quasi-interesting filler or failed experiments. Throughout Skimskitta, Mira Calix (Chantal Passamonte) uses her voice as a gossamer tarp under which she layers drones and dirges of varying hues and timbres, and she occasionally brings in some percussive bedlam to shake up the sonic stupor. While Passamonte's keen ear for odd tones and peculiar arrangements pique interest, she fails to construct anything very memorable from her mad grab bag of sonic tricks.
