Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, July 2012
These performances have a special fluency and zest that sets them apart from most other recorded versions. The way in which Cage's sound world steadily expands through the three Constructions...is vividly exploited, while the rhythmic cycles that are so rigorously layered in all three become a means to an exuberant end.

The Independent, August 2012
This second volume of his percussion music focuses on early works such as the hugely influential Third Construction (1941), a monumental piece incorporating instruments such as the Peruvian quijada...while in Living Room Music (1940), an actual room provides the sound sources so inventively mined here by the brilliant Chicago-based ensemble Third Coast Percussion.
