Quiet on the Bridge

As with the group's previous recordings, this CD combines a range of contemporary styles and approaches, including electronic and electro-acoustic music, contemporary chamber and interactive computer music, indeterminate (open) works and improvisation.

Most of the tracks were not only performed but also created by re-sound members, reflecting the strong composer-performer overlap of the group. In addition, two guests, Russell Goodwin and Nick Wilson, have contributed their pieces to this CD. Finally, re-sound's interpretation of Keith Humble's In Five (module of Nunique) returns to the improvisatory music of the '60s.

This is re-sound's fourth CD release.
