The second in a trilogy of Robinson's conceptual solo saxophone releases, Cerberus Reigning offers a richly evocative collection of electroacoustic pieces that tell a story about an other-worldly three-belled saxophone of sorts.
Developed around a live aesthetic - there are no edits or overdubs - Robinson uses computer software to process the acoustic sound of his tenor and soprano saxophones and alto flute. At times reminiscent of the electronic forays of Sun Ra or the Evan Parker Electro-Acoustic Ensemble, the music of Cerberus Reigning is a feast for the imagination, a wild ride through a mythological landscape filled with exotic sounds and intense virtuosity.
