Item Number: NX.INN917

Evoking the work of composers and artists as varied as Eno, Ligeti, Zappa and early Kraftwerk, Mike Olson's new album Six Projects spans the thirteen years since he began working with fragment-based composition. The half-dozen works run the gamut from choral music to analogue modular synthesizer work, but all began as fragments, sometimes thousands of tiny acoustic building blocks. By integrating elements of composition, performance and recording, Olson has created a process yielding through-composed pieces possessing an ethereal, cinematic quality; almost but not quite performable live.
