Ikue Mori (with Robert Quine and Marc Ribot) - Painted Desert (1997)
"Guitarist Robert Quine has claimed that Painted Desert is his session, but it wasn't released as such 'because of legalities.' Ikue Mori, under whose name this album was released, views it more as a meeting between Quine and herself that was directed by producer John Zorn. Either way, Painted Desert is a stunning work of guitar and drum machine/sampler trios. Mori recorded her parts, which rely primarily on tom tom and cymbal sounds, and then gave the tapes to Quine and Marc Ribot, who improvised guitar parts. The music sometimes sounds as if the guitarists decided to record a Ennio Morricone tribute. ..."
