Notes & Reviews:

The Bold Arch of Undreamt Bridges is the first full length recording of composer Peter Gilbert's music, featuring works for instruments and live electronics written primarily over the last four years. Gilbert's music is ethereal, spiritual, and meditative, exploring the depths of complex and expansively dissonant harmonies as they slowly phase through various instruments or electronic accompaniments. A priority of Gilbert's recent effort has been to develop a highly interactive texture between acoustic instrument and live electronics, so that the technological element assumes elements of the human warmth of the performer. The performers on this recording include the acclaimed Boston new music ensemble White Rabbit, international flute soloist Mario Caroli, and saxophonist Phillip Staudlin. Currently on the faculty at the University of New Mexico, Peter Gilbert has taught at various universities including Harvard, Wellesley, and Northeastern.
