Mexican composer Ernesto Martinez, a Conlon Nancarrow colleague, performs 10 tracks with his ensemble featuring the portable hyperion piano, using nylon guitar string, for which these 10 pieces were composed.

Martinez, Ernesto

Martinez, Ernesto:  Sincronario

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"The second CD from this maverick Mexican composer, a former colleague of the legendary Conlon Nancarrow, features a radical new instrument-the hyperión: a portable piano with nylon guitar strings! Over two years went into the conception and fabrication of the instrument, three years into the compositions and two more years into the rehearsal and recording of the music. Brilliantly performed by Ernesto's razor-sharp ensemble this is new music at its most exhilarating. Passionate, exotic minimalism from one of the world's most dedicated and uncompromising musical experimentalists!"-Tzadik
