Organized Sound and Sample Based Music
sample the album:
"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.

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
