Notes & Reviews:

With subtle influences from Cage, Ligeti, and the NY avante garde of the 50s, Lach Lau's music blends programming and algorithmic generation with traditional instruments creating diverse and unique works. The 6 pieces on this album of chamber works are presented as musical islands where each is its own labyrinth.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Islands, to me, are vacation spots. Chamba de um Acorde has instruments repeating ascending and descending lines with little regard for each other. The resulting rhythmic interplay is tightly woven and incredibly syncopated. Yenealoaedie concentrates on quarter tones and strange tunings, most prominently in the harp. Lau's soothing island drums perform in Pantaleon with electronics.
