Notes & Reviews:

The Octet Ensemble's inaugural album features the music of its founder William Susman. It gathers together a cast of artists who have worked with eighth blackbird, SIGNAL, Alarm Will Sound, Victoire and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. The music presents a unique amalgam of rhythmic and harmonic influences and sinuous, enigmatic original melodies. "... vivid, turbulent and rich-textured (music)... " - NYTimes "Susman's music is irresistible." - John Kilgore
