Concerning the Nature of Things by Jeff Snyder




“Following on the heels of Sunspots, Jeff Snyder’s debut solo analog synthesizer album released this past January, Concerning the Nature of Things is a striking collection of Snyder’s concert music, performed by internationally-renowned musicians. The album is a bold statement of Snyder’s unconventional artistic voice, blending influences from medieval polyphony, Brazilian percussion, and experimental noise music into a singular musical vision.Four of the five pieces feature unusual electronic instruments invented and built by Snyder, many of which produce sound through acoustic resonators instead of speakers, and are designed to encourage nuanced expression from the performers, creating a visceral and corporeal musical world. The performers include pedal steel guitarist Susan Alcorn (Mary Halvorson Octet), singers Caroline Shaw (Roomful of Teeth, Kanye West) and Gabriel Crouch (King Singers, Gallicantus), Mivos string quartet, and members of Wet Ink Ensemble and So Percussion.”[table “redc0292” not found /]
