Q&A, the latest release from Melbourne, Australia’s Qua (Cornel Wilczek), is a collection of twelve compositions brushed with strokes of guitar and electronics on a canvas of drums provided by James Cecil (Architecture in Helsinki) and Laurence Pike (Savath + Savalas, Pivot, Triosk). Qua has made the mastery of breathing life into every blip his stock in trade, and Q&A is no different. This music is very live - there are more drums, guitar and analog synths than computers - and explores tempos far north of those found in his previous work. In addition to the top-flight musicianship on display, Qua's deft knack for arrangement adds an uncanny vibrancy to each zero and one. With his feet on the dance-floor and his hand on vintage equipment, Qua has taken one step closer to perfecting his painstaking yet playful style.
