Un-heavy metal

The background visuals are lovely, but better yet, close your eyes and let Bill Dixon and Tony Oxley take you on their 12-minute journey. During his early childhood on Nantucket, did Dixon learn those squeals and rumbles from distant whale songs? And does Oxley's fondness for the thunder and clang of gongs and cymbals originate in the mills of his native Sheffield? Nah... more likely just pure delight in the fellowship of making endlessly fascinating sound from rounded pieces of brass and bronze.
