Already years ago announced 3rd CD of Jaakko Vanhala was being postponed several times. Finally, decision was to not make it as full length album but 21 minutes long mini CD. And what a CD it is! If one would feel necessity for another genre tag, it could be "composed noise". As opposite of free flowing jam or formless static rumble, there are many works that feel nearly orchestral. Certainly composed. Cuts of Grace is one of those examples where cut-up harsh noise reaches such a high level, it is not only cut-up for sake of being fragmented and busy. It is cut-up in absolute precision, where sound elements, textures, transitions, all flow perfectly into place. Yet it is noise. Noise composition where juicy and tasty sound sources are arranged into tracks that suck you into whirlwind of noise. Perhaps seemingly chaos, yet these cuts of grace have been assembled by man who clearly is not only noise maker, but noise artist.
