Ben Chatwin ~ The Hum

The timbres of Ben Chatwin may sound intimidating, but their back story reveals their benign nature.  The Hum amplifies sounds that may normally go unheard, the “hidden frequencies” detected by dogs and birds: power grids, radio waves, erased signals from blank tapes.

ACL 2019 ~ Top Ten Modern Composition

Some of the year’s most ambitious projects are found in this category, crisscrossing the globe from the history of Appalachia to the future of Australia.  Visual poems tell deep stories; singers connect to folklore and spirit.  And everywhere, there are

Max de Wardener ~ Kolmar

The music of Max de Wardener is impossible to pin down, as he gallops between instruments and styles.  This makes Kolmar an intriguing listen, with enough ideas for two releases; and it could be argued that it should be two, as the differences are so delineated.

Thomas William Hill ~ Grains of Space

Thomas William Hill won our hearts with his 2017 release Asylum for Eve.  His new album extends the romance.  By continuing to incorporate non-standard instruments (such as kalimba, Tibetan singing bowl, and metallophone), the artist deepens the route he established with Origamibiro,

Ben Chatwin ~ Altered Signals

One of the great experiments of the past few years continues as Ben Chatwin pours his music into yet another container.  The process began with Staccato Signals in 2018, as the artist invited a string quartet to participate in the compositional process.  After a

Snow Palms ~ Everything Ascending

Here’s a fun one, as Snow Palms returns with a new lineup and a new sound.  At first, Snow Palms was a solo venture for mallet instrumentalist David Sheppard with friends; Origin and Echo made a big impact when it was released in

ACL 2018 ~ Top Ten Modern Composition

When averaged, the Modern Composition category included not the most submissions, but the best.  We wish we could make this a list of 20, but then we’d have to double every list, and not every category features this many excellent releases in a given year.

Ben Chatwin ~ Drone Signals

Drone Signals is a companion piece to the exquisite album Staccato Signals, released earlier this summer.  One might call it an alternative take, a reimagining, a broadcast from Earth-2.  Just don’t call it a remix disc. Technically one would be right, but
