Album Review

Schroeder, Phillip – “Passage Through a Dream” – [Innova/American Composers]

Cousin Mary   7/5/2011   A Library, CD

Schroeder teaches theory and composition at Henderson State University in Arkansas. This set of pieces feature a number of traditional instruments (see track listings inside) and a soprano voice on track 5 whose sounds have been processed with digital delay. The mood of these works is understated; the delay leads to repetition which can be soothing or irritating depending on the listener’s mood.

Ethereal or just a bit too subtle? You decide.

PGM: Most tracks end with a few seconds of silence.
