Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The second release continues Third Coast Percussion's engaging survey of Cage's ensemble percussion music. The performances of the three Constructions, in particular, are absolutely masterly in their rhythmic evenness - the artists emphasize no downbeats in the measures, so one can concentrate at pleasure on one or another aspect of the complex rhythmic interactions between the instruments as the pieces unfold. In the First Construction, the string-pianist plays his part an octave lower than is customary, revealing a portentous quality that the music usually doesn't have. The humorous performance of Living Room Music complements the one by Ars Nova Copenhagen, also on Mode (no review); I particularly enjoy the Apple computer samples that appears in 'Melody'. The sound is lovely - rich and detailed.
