Notes & Reviews:

The Vocal Constructivists roar, whoop, snap, and flutter their way into the experimental music world with their debut album, Walking Still. Formed in 2011, the group has brought the exuberance and playfulness of experimental music to live audiences in England and America with their sung interpretations of graphic and text scores. Ranging in age from 18 to 72, members come from a variety of musical backgrounds and draw on classical, global, avant-garde, and performance art traditions. All musical decisions are made by members of the group, worked out in collaboration.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The Los Angeles New Music Ensemble's attempt to branch out and push boundaries has created something great: a chamber piece that uses chip tunes. Joseph Eidson's 'MINIBOSS' pairs a track of electronic sounds that are basically from Nintendo's GameBoy with the clarinet, flute, violin, and cello. The Konami code is even used, as are electronics. The tonal Gonzalo Speaks by Marc Mellits is idyllic and joyful. I've heard it before and the original was better. 'PABLO/SAUL', by Marvin Lamb, is a dark, dreary musing on the Pierrot ensemble's growth, and it includes numerous percussion instruments.
