Notes & Reviews:
In this electrifying new release, BMOP/sound features rock 'n' roll-inspired American composer, Steven Mackey. Composed in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Dreamhouse was not intended to be political commentary, but in the composer's words, "a journal of self-reflection about our place in a personal relationship with a political environment." The 45-minute plus oratorio features a dramatic performance by vocalist Rinde Eckert (co-librettist with Mackey) as the Architect, the tight harmonies of Synergy Vocals, and of course, Mackey's distinctive touch, the unleashed energy of the Catch Electric Guitar Quartet. Under Gil Rose's direction, this is an exceptional adrenaline-infused performance everyone should hear.Notes & Reviews:
