Living Earth Show, The – “High Art” – [Innova/American Composers]
The minute I heard the mallet percussion (Andy Meyerson) at the beginning of the first track, with the guitar (Travis Andrews) upon its heels, I knew I was in for a treat. Each of the five tracks takes the time to develop its own personality, minimally set but enhanced by electronics, crackling sounds, slide projector noises, and nuances from the masterful musicians Innova is known for. Read the CD sleeve to find out what each of the five composers has to say about the tracks. Most of all, enjoy.
