Michaels Reise originally was composed for large orchestra and could be called a trumpet concerto. In the version on this CD, it is a chamber piece. Rehearsals and recording were done together with the composer, the quality of both the performance and the sound are fantastic. It is maybe the most accessible of all Stockhausen compositions. Beautiful melodies (or, as Stockhausen calls them, formulas) can be heard. They are exchanged between the leading trumpet and other instruments.

Hauschka's The Prepared Piano is the distillation of Erik Satie's stripped-down languor, John Cage's innovations, and Klimperei's toy pop. Or in other words: the prepared piano technique applied to simple tunes that have a childlike quality to them. Cage had desecrated and reinvented the bourgeois instrument par excellence in the 1940s, taping, screwing, and placing almost every small object possible on its strings to conjure up new sounds.

German composer Volker Bertelmann–aka Hauschka–writes imaginative, pop-derived experimental pieces for piano that truly sound like nothing else out there. Compositionally, he works in a mode similar to that of Harold Budd, alternating between subtle melodic movement and rhythm-focused circularity, but his piano–which is often chopped and jerry-rigged and tampered with–possesses a unique timbre.

For someone who doesn't know much about the Kronos Quartet or Phillip Glass and who dabbles in classical music in general, I must say that this CD is one of my alltime favorite CDs. The music is intricate and haunting, I have listened to this CD more than 200 times and I don't seem to tire of it.

During the rehearsals for the string quartet version of "White Man Sleeps," a strong artistic bond developed between the work's performers, the renowned Kronos Quartet, and its composer, Kevin Volans. This led Kronos to commission a second-string quartet from Volans, especially written for the musicians. Like "White Man Sleeps," it is a stunning piece of music, recommended to every world music lover who wants to cross the bridge to contemporary, modern music. The work comes in three movements, each one with a different character. Most remarkably are the Ethiopian influences in the beginning bars of the first movement (compare this motive with the vocal style of the distinguished Ethiopian singer Aster Aweke) and the joyous Southern African dance-like motive featuring after the more contemplative opening of the second movement. The slightly melancholic song-like structure of the short third movement draws the work to a close.

Mid-'80s release that established Horovitz among the prime composers and players on the contemporary improvising scene. He's not among either the traditionalists or the fusion/light jazz crowd, but is part of the New York "downtown" school that utilizes everything from hard bop to rock to contemporary classical. Guitarist Bill Frisell was also an important contributor to the date.

Another excellent compilation of acoustic works by this Canadian ensemble. What the critics say: "Toronto's Arraymusic is one of North America's more astonishing founts of new music… it leans towards postminimalism with a dissonant edge." - Kyle Gayle, The Village Voice. "when the music does seep in, it's like acid-spiked punch." - Andrew Sun, Now Magazine. "Music from Mars gliding effortlessly into Turkish wedding music or a Himalayan blues." - Robert Everett-Green, The Globe and Mail.

The American Festival of Microtonal Music, Inc. (AFMM), was founded by Johnny Reinhard to showcase past and contemporary microtonal music and to introduce microtonality to the listening public. Through his direction of the AFMM and his other individual efforts, Reinhard has almost singlehandedly revived public awareness of microtonality in the 1990's. The AFMM has become a leader in new music activity today.
