"With Correspondences - the third release Editions Verde's series "Seeing the Forest in a Tree" - Morgan Evans-Weiler explores one conceptual idea with three iterations realized by Joseph Clayton Mills, Fraufraulein, and the duo Sarah Hughes and Patrick Farmer.

Evans-Weiler's Correspondences came in the form of an invitation for these artists to interact with his score by the same name and each audial-sculptural realization (the visual aspect is highlighted in the included 16-page booklet) has its own ecological temperament of organic materials and balances within the eye and ear.

As Hughes writes in the liner notes: "Morgan Evans-Weiler invited me to realise a new score intended to be interpreted as both sound and sculpture. For me, these are similar materials: one, a contouring of duration, the other, a contouring of matter. Both are made coherent through processes of composition and/or placement in space."

These three carefully crafted recordings offer a rewarding listening experience for established fans of Morgan's persistent and impassioned career as a performer and composer while those unfamiliar with Evans-Weiler's previous work will undoubtedly feel an intrigue for the process and an appreciation for the experience to view his sonic sculptures from three angles."-Editions Verde

"Anne Guthrie is an acoustician, composer, and French horn player living in Brooklyn, NY. She studied music composition and english at the University of Iowa and architectural acoustics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where she recently completed her Ph.D. Her music combines her knowledge of acoustics and contemporary composition/improvisation. Her electronic music has focused on exploiting the natural acoustic phenomena of unique architectural spaces through minimal processing of field recordings. Her composition has focused on the orchestration of non-musical sounds, speech in particular. Her French horn playing has focused on electronic processing and extended techniques used in improvisatory settings, as a soloist and with Fraufraulein and Delicate Sen, among others. Her acoustics research has focused on the use of ambisonics for stage acoustics. "

Other releases include his LP False Heat (False), Certain Words Again and Again (Sunshine Ltd), and four years later (since, why not) on CD by the trio Delicate Sen (with Anne Guthrie & Richard Kamerman).
