Featuring multiple Grammy Award winning soprano Estelí Gomez (of Roomful of Teeth) and musicians from New York-based piano/percussion quartet Yarn/Wire, this EP consists of two pieces that complement each other perfectly as two sides of a 10" record or a short digital album. We See the Flying Bird, for two percussionists, was written for Ian and Russell from Yarn/Wire and features resonant metal and pulsating vibrant textures. Five Songs, written for Estelí, is a series of five miniature vocalises accompanied by percussion and Fender Rhodes.

“With Julius, he was based in repetition, but here was a spirit of openness and improvisation. His scores, if they were written out that way, were often like jazz scores. He loved multiplying instruments – four pianos, ten cellos – so there was a real feeling of the presence of the instrument, not just using an instrument in some kind of equation, as a means to an end.” ~ Mary Jane Leach

Is the sound of any instrument more profound than that of the cello in the hands of a master? (Well, maybe the viola da gamba.) Here is exquisite cello music from the 14th to the 21st centuries played by Charles Curtis, including four compositions of his own. "Unfinished Song" will make you a believer. John Simms
