 Readers of the Paul Heyman feature in CR10, will already know that the virtuoso Mr. Heyman is probably Christendom's only exponent of the electric violin and when not gigging with people like Sal Solo is turning :ut intriguing tapes which are part-ambient, part-praise and worship and all originality. Paul's latest offering offers some shimmering soundscapes which some will %id captivating though the problem that some find with electric violins ("isn't that violin out of tune?" or more extremely "who's torturing a cat?" still exists).
