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.
re-sound has established itself as one of Australia's most progressive contemporary music ensembles. Its thought-provoking, challenging and dynamic performances explore the sounds of our time across a wide range of genres, styles, and performance contexts.
