Wang Lu: An Atlas Of Time
Label: NEW FOCUS RECORDINGS
Format: COMPACT DISC
Boston Modern Orchestra Project; Cuckson, Miranda; Rose, Gil; Momenta Quartet; Muncy, Ryan; Lippel, Daniel
Composer Wang Lu releases "An Atlas of Time," her second recording on New Focus, featuring two large ensemble works performed by the Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP). The album title, also the title of the opening work, provides an apt metaphor for Wang Lu's work; her integration of Eastern and Western influences into her compositional style is less about a fusion of styles as it is about tapping into a cartography of her own personal memory and experiences. In this sense, Wang Lu works with "found sounds" that resonate within her own psyche but obliquely reference larger cultural touchstones.
