La Voyelle Liquide

(Erstwhile) Used CD $6.00

“Seven pieces [that] place a premium on texture and dynamics. Müller and Lê’s sense of rhythmic subtlety is expressed through the opening and closing of a filter as often as it is through the development of a phrase or pattern. They have a penchant for bright metallic sounds: when a brisk rhythmic pattern is established, the music takes on the gamelan tinge of an early Lou Harrison piece; in a more eruptive soundscape, these sources can be harrowing. Müller and Lê also delve into very quiet sounds, which can lapse into silence…, leaving the listener on the edge of his seat.”
