Album: Will Self/Notes Inégales/ Peter Wiegold, Kafka's Wound (Club Inegales)

Notes Inégales weave skeins of klezmer around Will Self's digital essay, its touchstone Kafka's 1919 story, A Country Doctor.

This is dance as prayer and dance as fury: a violent whirl of doynas and freilachs warped over the morbid tones of Self's voice with composers Martin Butler and Peter Wiegold on keyboards and – among others – Max Baillie on clarinet and violin. Black humour and blood-red melodies from the imagined heart of Middle Europe.
