Notes & Reviews:

Allusions to Seasons and Weather is a suite of four works based on experiences of time and place in the woods, water, mountains, and magical far north of Norway, where Swendsen lived for a year as a Fulbright Fellow. The suite itself, as well as the three additional pieces that accompany it on this CD, combine field recordings and electronics with the invention and artistry of exceptionally imaginative performers.
