Michael Mueller This is a superb composition, masterfully rendered by a top-notch ensemble.

Thought the final movement in unsurpassable, all three are brilliant and vital in their own ways. And it's Part II that is the boldest; with its stark, glistening bursts of truncated harmonics.

Really compelling music that is genuinely 'new' is rare. But here it is. Dive on in and enjoy.

Favorite track: Debris & Alchemy III.

Kate Moore (1979) presents music that feels simultaneously familiar and strange. It explores the transformation of musical material through a landscape of memory and reference. In Debris & Alchemy allusions of 60s folk/pop, the experimental avant-garde, sacred music and hard-core gothic rock are splattered with the sounds of strange objects, shards of porcelain, car engine springs and garbage cans. Pairing church organ with an eccentric mix of saxophones and electric guitar conjures a wilderness of crumbling Gothic architecture and decaying rusty cars.
