Almost Truths And Open Deceptions

Gosfield, Annie With Kleier / Chiu / Falanga / Smith: Almost Truths And Open Deceptions (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Annie is a composer of great imagination whose work brings together noise, traditional notation, and improvisation with wit and a charming sense of humor. For her fourth Tzadik CD she has put together another remarkable program of pieces inspired by (among other things) 78rpm records, deterioration, junk dealers and baseball. Including a piece for her own electric group inspired by the industrial revolution, a concerto for cello and six players and a composition for solo piano and broken shortwave radio this is one of Annie's most imaginative and varied collections."-Tzadik
