Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Three Compositions" presents a cross-section of composer Kenneth Kirschner's highly diverse output. The collection includes "July 17, 2006", a spare study in simple harmony and silence; "April 27, 2004", an ever-shifting, rhythmic juxtaposition of acoustic percussion and digital sound; and the nearly 40-minute "May 3, 1997" for microtonal piano, percussion, and noise, one of Kirschner's signature pieces. For those new to his music, "Three Compositions" offers an ideal introduction to Kirschner's large body of work, while those already familiar with it will appreciate the opportunity to hear these recordings in the highest sound quality yet available.

Composer Kenneth Kirschner was born in 1970 and lives in New York City. An advocate of open source audio, Kirschner releases his music freely online and encourages other musicians to sample, appropriate and interpret it. His work has been released on CDs from labels such as 12k, Sub Rosa, Sirr, and/OAR and Leerraum, as well as online through a wide variety of netlabels and other sources."-Sirr.ecords


Artist Biographies

He therefore gave up studying Music academically and moved to New York City to develop his work on his own. Kenneth spent the 1990s composing and developing his style, while doing occasional commissions for ballet and modern dance. [...]"
