Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

Dorgon only plays horn on one track here and tambura on another, instead showing a nice hand for composition. "String Quartet" focuses on the low end, with three cellos and a bass executing a rich, slowly unfolding 13-minute drone. Also a sax/drum duo, two pieces for solo cello and a second extended drone with the composer on tamboura. Comes with a handmade cardboard cover in a plastic sleeve.

Dorgon
For Jason Viseltear
(Jumbo)
Jason Viseltear, based in NYC, makes violins, violas, and cellos for both contemporary and period / baroque performance. Inexplicably, Mr. Dorgon dedicated this work to him, a piece of sound and noise, perhaps constructed using string instruments; perhaps not.
