Editorial Comments: Composer Rocco Ingala, Jr. demonstrates that music is energy, and there are many instruments and possibilities that will drive and move that energy. Throughout, we are kept curious and constantly on our toes, if a little off-balance at times, due to the constant information of new ideas, both musical and philosophical. Unlike many other Electronic Music compositions that are either ambient, pop, or industrial, throughout this recording the aim has been to reference authentic acoustic instruments and performance practice, and then ultimately to suggest many new possibilities and directions. Each work can be either complicated or simple, excruciatingly beautiful and deliberate, and then surprise us with what happens when we, the listener and the composer, take chances and risks. This music is highly structured, and yet out of joint in other ways, all displaying combinations of necessity and magic, mechanism and spontaneity. Listener's Comments: "...like 1950s Boulez and Stockhausen, or John Cage in the 21st Century!"
