AVIVA ENDEAN cinder : ember : ashes (Sofa Music)
Astonishing solo-album of Melbourne musician Aviva Endean for clarinet, bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, whistle, timpani, voice and effects. Operating on the edge of instrumental sound and breathing, Endean’s rich and mesmerizing music is a transcending affair all through of beautiful musical engravings morphing into and in open space. The music has a rare quality of concrete abstractness full of shimmering, dazzling tonalities, sub-melodic traces and vocal qualities. Endean’s music provides unusual as natural sounds. It speaks directly to listeners’ imagination and feelings, can even evoke trance effects.
