Performers Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"I need no words," a quote from Virginia Woolf's experimental novel The Waves, reflects composer Linda Dusman's recent contemplation of texts and their ability to create sonic images in the musical imagination! This CD documents works that resulted from her engagement with texts as diverse as poetry by Joan Retallack, Emily Dickinson, and e.e. cummings; novels by Virginia Woolf and Gertrude Stein; Mary McDonnell's Red Line Drawings, and the Bible!

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Linda Dusman's program of sonic interpretations often has interesting sounding ideas. From a technical perspective, E Michael Richards does a fantastic job with altered fingerings, note alterations, empty keys, ghost notes, and gentle multiphonics.
