A Great Lake
Movement, Turns, and Switches" with the Oliver Lake String Project. This new album features FLUX Quartet (violinist Tom Chiu, violinist Conrad Harris, violist Max Mandel, and cellist Felix Fan), who Lake has worked with since 2002 and for whom he composed the majority of the pieces on the recording. Like much of the composer's works, the 9 compositions have written and improvised sections plus the use of graphics and minimal notation.
Oliver Lake has been a creative force for over five decades and shows no inclination to stop pushing forward. In FLUX Quartet, he has found musicians as daring as he, as willing to go deep into music and out on a limb as he continues to do. Pay attention to"Right Up On"; even as the music challenges your expectations, it will also take you many places.
