Michael Winter – lower limitMichael Winter – lower limit (New World Records 80798-2)

Michael Winter is a composer, but also co-curator and co-director of the wulf., the non-profit arts organization that presents experimental music in Los Angeles. Presented on this CD are five compositions of contemporary minimalism and music with pure tones (just intonation tuning). necklaces for guitar and tones opens with a throbbing, droning microtonal chord that eventually includes a guitar pulse. The pulse remains the same, the chord slowly changes. mass and band, for virginal and harpsichord pluck along with much microtonal splendor for almost 12 minutes. Chorale and finely tuned resonators, for eight sustaining instruments evolves as a slow drone. Plucked guitars return on lower limit, pitches tuned to intervals from the harmonic series. Necklaces (solo version) returns at the end of the disc with a single guitar playing the only the repeating pulse, harmonics ringing out from the string are the stars.

The dense liner notes in the accompanying booklet by the composer explain his personal compositional approach. A breath of fresh air for ears in these troubled times.
