On Before Music There Is Blood, Soundwalk Collective entered three of the world's best music conservatories – Shanghai Conservatory, the State Conservatory Rimsky-Korsakov in Saint Petersburg and the Music Conservatory San Pietro a Majella in Naples – recording hundreds of hours of students' practice through the walls and corridors. The resulting album (also a live audio-visual performance at La Triennale di Milano) is a collection of harmonious fragments, a reflection on composition and context and observation on the will to excel. Seriously beautiful and intriguing stuff from the art trio, whose studies of sound, nature and culture have seen them team up with Jean-Luc Godard, Nan Goldin, Eponine Momenceau and Patti Smith.
