Relâche

"Comix Trips" is good fun! Inspired from some of America's great cartoon and fictional characters, each movement is a reflection of their disposition and comedic struggles, of which we fell in love with. Paul Lansky challenges you to give a listen and try to match the movement with the correct icon. Then we plug in for a little electroacoustic barking from Randall Woolf's "Canine State of Mind". Randy makes us wonder, who is wagging the tail with the loudest bark. Be careful not to get bit! "Waiting in the Tall Grass" is the perfect means to which Galen Brown (www.galenbrown.com) brings the listener to an animated wonder of rhythmic complexity and color. Just to sprinkle in a little salt and pepper, we include Darin Kelly's arrangements of Raymond Scott's "Twilight in Turkey", "The Penguin", and "Powerhouse".

Relâche is a new music ensemble which for thirty-five years has maintained an international reputation as a leader in commissioning and performing the innovative music of our time. Relâche has a unique sound - flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, viola, piano, bass and percussion, and performs works that are neither classical, nor popular, but somewhere in between - a melding of Western classical traditions with jazz, rock, electronica, world music, and more. Among the oldest continuously operating, non-profit organizations and chamber ensembles dedicated to contemporary music in the United States, to date, Relâche has performed more than 600 concerts in the Greater Philadelphia area, around the country and the globe, including residency, festival and touring appearances in South America, Japan and Eastern and Western Europe. The Ensemble boasts a touring-ready repertoire of over 50 pieces and a repertory library of over 400 works. Nearly 200 of these are Relâche commissions, including works by Robert Ashley, Kitty Brazelton, John Cage, Uri Caine, Fred Frith, Kyle Gann, Philip Glass, Fred Ho, Michael Nyman, Gavin Bryars, Pauline Oliveros, Bobby Previte, George Russell, Somei Satoh, and Lois V Vierk, as well as the three living composers featured on this album.
