Notes & Reviews:

Julia Wolfe's 'Dark Full Ride' consists of four new compositions, each written for multiples of individual instruments - nine bagpipes, four drum sets, six pianos and eight double basses. Wolfe says, "Like staring for a long time at a Rothko painting, I imagined each of these pieces as an exploration of one color. But in truth an instrument isn't really a single timbre. There are a myriad of worlds within each sound." Working closely with the performers during the composing process, Wolfe uncovers a never-before-heard music. For example, while writing LAD, she uses the initial drone produced while filling the bagpipe with air as the piece's introduction. Says Wolfe, "With each piece I tried to dive into a psychedelic landscape, at once multilayered, fractured, ecstatic, silent, driving, cacophonous and direct."
