This CD & In the Light of Air arrived during the week. So far I have only really given the first three pieces on Aerial a listen & there is no doubt that Aeriality is the most impressive. To my untutored ears there seem to be evident soundings of Ligeti, Penderecki & Saariaho and a sustained chord which echoes in the resonant spaces of my head with the opening of Beethoven's 7th and Wagner's Rheingold.  This is not to devalue what she is doing, rather to mark a musical landscape that is being reformed much as the geographical one we see Anna T exploring in the album photo.

In interviews she comes across as so slight of frame & gentle of expression. The physical power of this music is quite astonishing in contrast.

Rhizoma remains tantalisingly out of print - if anyone knows of a copy going spare please let me know. Not only is the title redolent with Deleuzean possibilities, the package itself looks beautifully put together ...
