24 Lies Per Second
Works for Percussion and ElectronicsPowerplant
An exhilarating new album of contemporary music shaped by the collaborative musical collective Powerplant, featuring performances from percussionist Joby Burgess in collaboration with sound designer Matthew Fairclough and visual artist Kathy Hinde.
24 Lies Per Second combines works by contemporary British composers – Graham Fitkin, Max de Wardener and Dominic Murcott – with two pieces by compositional icons Conlon Nancarrow and Steve Reich, including the Reich work My Name Is (for audience and tape recorder) which has never before been released commercially.
This release includes a bonus CD Plus video performance of Max de Wardener's Im Dorfe, which can be viewed when playing the CD on a PC.

... fascinating but more esoteric, each item's intention and techniques well explained in Joby's notes - he is a 21st C explorer at the edge. Do try to see Joby in action on your computer in the staged Im Dorfe video track, illustrated above (needs Quicktime 7 or later). Riveting!
