Fluid Rustle is a subtle, beautiful piece of storytelling music – the themes and titles reflect on a passage from Richard Adams’ 1972 classic Watership Down. Through the 4 tracks, the artist blends minimalism, chamber music, ambient, and jazz with touches of eastern influence, most notably in Weber’s use of the Indian tarang on the latter section of “Quiet Departures.” ECM regulars Gary Burton (vibraphone, marimba) and Azimuth’s Norma Winstone (voice) shine here bringing a relaxed, ethereal quality to Weber’s music.
