Notes & Reviews:

Award-winning composer David Kechley mines the intimate in order to find the dramatic, eschewing volume and mass in favor of tension and melodic invention of the works on this disc. This extends to the instrumentation, which includes creative percussion such as circular saw blades and pine planks cut to different lengths in "Design and Construction" or the pitched gongs, crotales, woodblocks, and exotic bells of the title track.
