The second volume in the Exchange Sessions between jazz drummer Steve Reid and electronic whiz Kieran Hebden is even more abstract than the first. Like its predecessor, it contains three cuts; all of them over 15 minutes in length. Given that there were no overdubs or edits of any kind, the pressure put on the players is fairly hefty. The level of abstraction here is very high.

Their review was highly critical

The idea behind the Exchange Sessions is pretty basic: put together two artists from different realms and see what happens. In a way, it’s not that different from what Konkurrent does on their In the Fishtank series, though I don’t believe Domino plans on putting out more things like this. But I could be wrong. The two parts of the Exchange Sessions represent a day in the recording studio with Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid.
