Notes & Reviews:

Lisa Moore is back with her second EP, Lightning Slingers and Dead Ringers, written specifically for her by composer Annie Gosfield, who is described as "...a major figure of the downtown scene with pieces that use nonmusical sounds in a strikingly expressive manner." Wondering where such an eclectic title comes from? A "Lightning Slinger" is an archaic term for a telegraph operator, and an apt simile for a pianist who translates musical ideas into an electric medium and "Dead Ringer," literally means an exact substitute of something. The dead ringers in this case are samples of piano sounds. The last track, "Brooklyn, October 5, 1941" was inspired by the 1941 Dodgers vs. Yankees World Series, and is performed with two baseballs and a catcher's mitt. Lightning Slingers and Dead Ringers was commissioned by Lisa Moore with funding provided by Meet the Composer's Commissioning USA and The Argosy Fund for New Music.
