John Contreras/Rose McDowall/Nurse With Wound, Jnana Records, Durtro, 2005

Este es un EP de tres temas que se edita al mismo tiempo que el concierto de Current 93 que realizó en Ontario, en Junio de 2005. En todos ellos toca el cellista John Contreras, ahora como colaborador de Current 93 y Cyclobe.
El primer tema “Afraid” y el tercero “Afraid 2” son adaptaciones de la canción original de Nico [ex-Velvet Underground] en los que colaboran Rose McDowall con su ensoñadora voz y Contreras. McDowall ha colaborado con varios artistas como Current 93, Death In June, Coil y Michael Cashmore y formó y Strawberry Switchblade, Sorrow. En el segundo tema, "Geometric Horsehair Cavalcade" colaboran Contreras en cello y el mentor de Nurse With Wound Steven Stapleton en piano preparado.
“Afraid” es una bella canción que está coronada por las solemnes notas de cello de Contreras, en tanto que la segunda versión “Afraid 2” es más etérea y adornada con celestiales campanillas.
El contrapunto lo ofrece "Geometric Horsehair Cavalcade" con disonantes notas de cello que entrega Contreras y el rasgueo improvisado de las cuerdas de piano, que parece un diálogo oblicuo y torcido.

This is a CDEP of three tracks that was released and came out together with Current 93's concerts that took place in June 2005. In all of them plays the cello John Contreras, now as a collaborator of  Current 93 and Cyclobe.
The first cut Afraid and third one Afraid 2 are adaptations of Nico’s [ex-Velvet Underground] original song in which collaborates Rose McDowall with her ethereal voice alongwith Contreras. McDowall has collaborated with several artists like Current 93, Death In June, Coil and Michael Cashmore and formed Strawberry Switchblade and Sorrow.
In the second track, Geometric Horsehair Cavalcade collaborates Contreras on cello and Nurse With Wound’s frontman Steven Stapleton in prepared piano.
Afraid is a beautiful song that is crowned by solemn notes of Contreras’s cello, whereas the second version Afraid 2 its more ethereal and is adorned with celestial bells.
The counterpoint is shown on Geometric Horsehair Cavalcade with dissonant Cello notes that give us Contreras plus the improvised flourish on the piano chords that seem an oblique and twisted dialogue.
