". . .one of the most tightly integrated orchestral pieces I've encountered in some time. At its core is a nine-note scale that gives rise to various permutations, yet beyond any manipulations of pitch sequences and relationships lies an inexorable, heroic quality I found remarkably compelling."

Mike McFerron's music is rich and full of driving energies and crisp, clean sounds. Grooves abound most of the time and when he takes a more delicate approach (such as Prelude or Dinadanvtli), he is equally effective. Great music here, you will enjoy this disc!
