Influenced by Harry Partch, Sun Ra and San Francisco’s Musee Mecanique’s collection of old nickelodeons and player pianos, Annie Gosfield presents us with a new view of microtonal music.
The sounds of a percussion factory, a destroyed piano and an abandoned guitar are twisted into sophisticated compositions incorporating tuned and detuned instruments, traditional and non-traditional techniques, composition and improvisation.
Also included is an exciting premiere composition for saxophone quartet performed here by the world-renown group Rova, and one of the best solo sampler pieces you’re ever likely to hear.
