Review: This latest disc has the intrepid duo playing a far-ranging selection of new compositions. They have increased their range over their previous disc and added new instruments. Tracks 2-9 are meant to be all one piece but can be played separately. Every track is a new adventure. I pretty much liked the whole disc. So sue me.
If You Like: Phillip Glass, Steve Reich, Xenakis
