Extraordinary, sculpted sounds. The collection of 6 works features both electroacoustic studio works and solo electric/MIDI guitar. From the avalanche of sound in “Off the Edge” to the dense textural trance of “Copper Flying,” through to the evocative beauty of “InDia,” this disc shows the breadth of Oliver’s music from the 1990s.
“… one of the most viscerally dramatic discs I’ve heard in quite a while… huge slabs of extremely solid music” —George Zahora,
“… shimmering bells of guitar, softly growling guitar.” —Andra McCartney, Musicworks
“… most engaging, creating an image of the guitar coming to life via some sorcerer’s apprentice and doing mischief… A most effective and evocative piece.” —Computer Music Journal
