A companion piece of sorts to Scott Walker's challenging 2006 album, THE DRIFT, the 25-minute AND WHO SHALL GO TO THE BALL? presents four instrumental pieces composed by the British-based avant-pop icon. Commissioned by a London modern dance company, these tracks are far from accessible, often building up to an anxious frenzy, as on the string-laden "2nd Movement" and the cacophonous "4th Movement." Lacking Walker's signature deep croon, BALL can be most directly linked to John Zorn's classical/experimental work, and may perplex fans of Walker's eccentric yet pop-savvy 1960s outings, making it an offering primarily geared towards his diehard followers.
