Product details

Throughout Mandala 1 there is an entire absence of foreground pulse (beat) and meter. Shapes float across one another, reflect one another, sometimes collide with, and refract one another; isolated tones hang suspended in the air; no sooner do two or three instruments come together, but they ripple off into their own time field. This lack of regularity takes the music to the bounds of playability in terms of ensemble and gives it what may be, at first, a disconcerting character for the listener.
