Notes & Reviews:

This is Pape's third monographic CD with Mode Records. Whereas his last Mode CD ("Electro-acoustic Chamber Works, released in 1998) presented his ground breaking works of 1993-1996, this new CD presents a selection of his more recent pieces composed from 1998 to 2004. While Pape continues his fascination with composing with chaotic sound in 'Le Fleuve du Desir IV' and 'Weaveworld Prologue', it is his new approach to composing with packets of granular time that predominates on this CD.
