About the album
This is the 5th recording (the first on Songlines) by Montreal percussionist Gossage's Other Voices. The group, which he started in 1998 as a vehicle for his compositions, has evolved into one where creation in the moment completes the compositional process. Gossage takes a sculptor's approach to sound, inspiring his musicians to carve out forms and concepts through structured group improvisations which demonstrate their quick yet thoughtful responses. Combine Braxton's love of abstruse counterpoint and borderline atonality with Varese's manner of animating blocks of sound, throw in a wry sense of humor, inject just a dash of chaos - and you get an experimental jazz record that is attractively varied as well as engaging on deeper levels.
