HERRINGTON, CHLOE: Silent Reflux
Seven non-linear, hybrid, compositions that seldom do what you expect and are extremely focused on the juxtaposition of timbres, musical gestures, montage, narrative-sound, fragments and flat rhythmic interludes; these are not improvisations or conventional compositions so mush as a dreamlike progression through scenes and tableaux, diversely orchestrated with winds, strings, horns, a saz, an oud, drums (often in episodic and melodic interventions). Chloe handles the bassoon, saxes, piano, and Philicorda. There is also an olfactory dimension, if you wish to collect the necessary material (specified with the CD) before you listen. Interesting times again; things are going on.
