When you get a new Hoor-paar-Kraat recording, you never quite know what Anthony Mangicapra is going to give you. it’s always something new, ambitious and often pretty indescribable. This one is no exception and takes hpk to undiscovered territory. This release works mainly in the higher register. It’s bookended by two pieces rooted in the sounds of a singing bowl, or at least that’s what it sounds like to my ears. The centerpeice of the disc, was created by ‘playing’ a sculpture by Eric Furman. It’s quiet, beautiful, and creates a sense of space not often heard in a piece of music. Numbered edition of 142. Packaged in a tri-fold cover with art by Anthony Mangicapra with a vellum overlay.
