Album Review

Gordon, Michael Feat. Ensemble Resonanz – “Weather” – [Arthrob]

Cousin Mary   7/1/2011   A Library, CD

Michael Gordon (of Bang on a Can) gives us a dramatic set of four pieces that combine the traditional string ensemble with mostly very subtle effects such as a fuzz box (Weather Two), muffled voices, glitches, beats, etc.

Weather One, Two, and Four come across primarily as minimalist contemporary classical music. Weather Three uses the harmonics of air raid sirens and is surprisingly listenable.

Very cool!
