1. Greg Stuart & Michael Pisaro – Closed Categories in Cartesian Worlds

Julia Holter – Loud City Song

3. Greg Stuart & Joe Panzner – Dystonia Duos

4. Greg Stuart & Antoine Beuger – Sixteen Stanzas on Stillness and Music Unheard

5. Tom Johnson & Samuel Vriezen – The Chord Catalogue; Within Fourths/Within Fifths

“I don’t listen to enough new music, but I do listen to a lot of New Music, i.e. contemporary classical music, which doesn’t usually take its form in albums. Here’s a small collection of what has, though. Greg Stuart is a wonderful percussionist who had an extremely productive year, performing works by Michael Pisaro and Antoine Beuger and collaborating with electronic artist Joe Panzner. He and Panzner will be in Oberlin in March performing their own music and a (different) piece by Pisaro. Julia Holter is now more firmly in the “pop” world, but she studied composition with Pisaro. Her newest album is, this is not really a hyperbole, indescribably good. Her background shows, but only in a good way. Finally, a recording that actually matters of an “old” classical piece (on the label founded by Beuger) – Samuel Vriezen performs Tom Johnson’s 1986 piece “The Chord Catalogue,” which systematically presents every possible chord within a single octave at lightning fast speed.”
