TOTEM>: Voices of Grain

Read "Voices of Grain" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

And the musicians hop right into the thick of things on the opener “Genosong," where electric guitarist Bruce Eisenbeil saws, slices, and seemingly hacks his way through a ...

Computer Music, Part 2

Read "Computer Music, Part 2" reviewed by Nick Catalano

Listening to any recording by Evans often prompts the ...
