Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by admireArt
3 stars Layer over layer of electronically processed strings counterponting each and another by contrast, brightness, intention and melody lines. The symphonic mode is set by this meltdown of multiple string lines coming together at once.

"Harmogram Suite", 2012, consists of 6 tracks, the first 5 are structured as a "Suite", thus their respective numerical names and closing non-suite track "Lament".

The sections of this suite by numbers.

Number 1 is mesmerizing and this release's best. Number 2 is overly sweet. Number 3 is close in mood to number 2, a bit less sugar added, but still close.

Number 4 breaks away from its elder siblings in favor of the "less is more" formula and even better if the music composition is heartfelt and not overly emotional. It beholds an strangely attractive "Bela Bartok quartet" quality in its structures, chaos is represented not really present. Very good!

Number 5 is dramatic, yet in its attempted heights, its sweet tooth shows up again and kind of brings the whole thing down.

"Lament", closes this release with a short solo violin, less the electronics, piece, which stays in balance between being passionate without sounding over the borders.

Kind of a dissapointing release, as far as my past, far more fortuitous encounters with this extraordinary composer & performer.

***3 "flat" PA stars, which may find its way in more "sweet-toothed", listeners.
