Peter Garland String Quartets, Cold Blue Music, 2009 coldbluemusic
GarlandQuartetcover1forweb

“‘String Quartets’ exudes a wide-ranging and wide-eyed, even ecstatic character at times, due in no small part to the magnificent rendering of the quartets by the four Apartment House string players. In fact, it would be criminal not to comment on the caliber of the string playing, with violinists Gordon MacKay and Hilary Sturt in particular demanding to be recognized for the passion with which they bring Garland's luscious and lyrical melodies to life.” Textura, June 2009

"Peter Garland has had a rich career . . . and the two string quartets recorded here show the imprint of his varied interests and pursuits. . . . The first quartet, written in 1986 in Santa Fe and subtitled "In praise of poor scholars," takes as its inspiration a poem by a fifth century Chinese poet. Garland has delved deeply into the musics of East Asia, and he unselfconsciously and gracefully incorporates elements of pentatonicism into several movements of the quartet. He began the second in Japan and finished it in Germany in 1994. It, too, has a literary association; its subtitle, "Crazy Cloud," was the pen name of a fifteenth century Japanese poet, and it inhabits much the same varied musical landscape as the first. Apartment House, a group formed in 1995 and dedicated to new music, plays with commitment and understanding, making a strong case for Garland's sometimes enigmatic musical logic. The group also has an exceptionally pure and clean tone and a beautiful blend. The sound is intimate and clean." Stephen Eddins, All-Music Guide, 2009

Zbigniew Karkowski Atsuko Nojiri Continuity, 2007 asphodel
Features a re-mix (Perceptor) of the work Field commissioned for Apartment House string quartet by Sonic Arts Network/BBC Cut & Splice Festival, London 2006

103.main

If any recording constitutes the sum total of an artist's career to date, it is Continuity. Both a career overview and a glimpse into renowned Polish sound artist Zbigniew Karkowski's promising future, the compositions on this hybrid release sample and re-interpret the entirety of the Tokyo resident's rich catalogue of work. A master sound manipulator, Karkowski employs a variety of tools to process and rework original acoustic instrument recordings. The pieces presented on Continuity demonstrate Karkowski’s relentless attention to detail, and provide more than ample explanation for repeated invitations to perform at prestigious galleries, museums, and venues around the globe.
