Sample The Album:

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.
