Album Summary

Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This groundbreaking new release is the result of twelve years of work from composer Joseph Bertolozzi. The nine compositions on Tower Music use only sounds of the Eiffel tower, without the aid of instruments or other effects. A bonus track, Audio Tour of Eiffel Tower, is also included on this release. This release follows Bertolozzi's 2008 album, Bridge Music, which was composed using New York's Mid Hudson Bridge. "Tower Music is a tour de force of Postmodern culture. It is both specific in its creation and general in its references... It works on the imagination, fully encompassing a history and tradition redolent of France, Paris, and the Eiffel Tower." (Andrew Tomasello)

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Jonathan Perl (midi).

Recording information: Audio Library of the Eiffel Tower, Paris, France.
