    Notes by PEK:
    A return to the PEK/Yuri duet format of some of the earlier sessions... This time with a greatly increased palate, Ableton mix from processed samples of the Evil Clown Catalog, and more signal processing... Featuring newly acquired instruments in the Arsenal - bass saxophone and orchestral chimes... A great example of the Evil Clown broad palette aesthetic with development through dozens of combinations of density, sonority and dynamic level...
    Review by Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
    METAL CHAOS ENSEMBLE [PEK / YURI ZBITNOV] - Malleability (Evil Clown 9132; USA) This version of the Metal Chaos Ensemble features just two core members of the Leap of Faith clan: PEK on tenor & bass saxes, clarinets, dulzaina, electronics, theremin, daxophone, foghorn and assorted percussion & metals and Yuri Zbitnov on drums, daiko, chimes, glockenspiel, balafon, crotales, metals & voice.
    This is a stripped down version of Leap of Faith with just two members and it is one of the best discs. Superbly recorded at Evil Clown Headquarters, mostly reeds, percussion and minimal electronics. Unfolding slowly and concentrating on one or two instruments at a time. Rather than go too far out, the duo cautiously weave their sounds with great care. Everything is well-balanced and rarely too dense. If you haven’t started your Leap of faith collection yet, this would be a good place to start as it is one of their least demanding yet still compelling on several levels without going too far into the stratosphere of free/jazz insanity. Most impressive! - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG
