Notes & Reviews:

Thomas Osborne (b. 1978) writes: "For someone who was born in a land-locked region of the country, oceans have played a surprisingly important role in my music. Each of the works on this recording reference the sea in one way or another, and each was composed in close proximity to the ocean as well. I wrote three of these pieces in Los Angeles and the other in my current home of Honolulu. The four works on this CD, each in its own way, look out to the watery horizon, some exploring the expanse of water itself and others seeking what lies beyond. For a composer, the most fulfilling collaborations are those involving friends, and it has been my privilege to work with the musicians of Aperio for more than a decade. My collaboration with them began when I was a graduate student in Houston, and has continued on for many years since. In that time, I have crossed oceans to work with Aperio again and again, and I will gladly do so again in the future. Every composer should be so lucky as to work with musicians like these."
