Album Review
Reviewed 2018-11-14
– General Description: This album is a delight and very relaxing. Harpist, composer, and improviser Stephan Haluska is excellent examining the harp’s unique textural, harmonic, and percussive qualities. Based in Cleveland, OH, much of his music focuses on blending traditional and non-traditional harp playing through extended techniques, preparation, tools, electronics, and effects pedals. In addition to his solo music, Haluska collaborates with numerous jazz, free improvisation, and experimental musicians.

1. (11:37) Jeldon - sound rippling through the curtains
2. (6:05) Empty Room - sparkling crystals
3. (9:28) New Windows - a bit wild compared to the others, like insects swarming to enter the window
4. (12:30) Ocean Projector - builds to a strong crescendo and releases to peace
