XI 136 - The South Shore
xirecords.org/136.shtml

The South Shore is the debut of Michael Vincent Waller, released March 8th/April 14th, 2015 (US/UK), featuring chamber works from the 2011-2014. Waller collaborated with over 20 musicians and ensembles to bring this record to life, a 2-CD release with album art photography by Phill Niblock.

"The music of Michael Vincent Waller offers a welcome and rare alternative to the tempo and noise of modern life. These touching miniatures employ the pure modal scales first described by ancient Greek philosophers and sustained through millennia in the folk song of many lands, in religious chant, and in the modern era by the works of composers such as Erik Satie (especially his monodrama ‘Socrate’) and Terry Riley (especially ‘A Rainbow in Curved Air’).

Waller’s music convinces us by its honest emotion, which avoids any artifice that would dramatically pull us toward some effect. Although it is the first time we have heard these works, we seem to immediately understand the intimate feeling they refer to.”

~ “Blue” Gene Tyranny
