Notes & Reviews:

On her debut solo release Tapping the Furnace, Dorothy Hindman's fascinating and ear-grabbing works are interpreted by some of today's top new music performers, including Craig Hultgren, Laura Gordy, Paul Bowman and Stuart Gerber. The result is a wide-ranging collection that touches on the visceral contained within Hindman's highly structured compositions.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
'Drift', by Dorothy Hindman, is a short work for saxophone quartet. The percussion solo Tapping the Furnace has interesting program notes, concerning Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama. DrowningXnumbers, an unaccompanied cello solo, uses amplification and extended techniques to create a bevy of nontraditional sounds. The cello sings, jumps, needles, saws, and scratches its nails down a chalkboard through three increasingly static and quiet sections.
