MACLEAN, STEVE: Prime
A collection of new pieces that range across media and genres, mostly exploring prime numbers and the overtone series and featuring various guitars, a grand piano (played and remote-controlled), a quiet drum station, tube bells, assorted percussion, an amplified wire with an Echoplex, a modular synthesizer system - and Moog, Roland, Korg and Smith synths. Also featuring bassoon, five-string bass and drums on various tracks. There are tuneful polyrhythmic compositions, timbre-based works, atmospheric meditations, film-music and some exquisite manipulations of sound. This is Steve’s 9th CD for us so far and in some ways usefully bridges the wide variety of styles and media that have marked his compositions to date. Meticulously produced and mastered.
