ArtistsElizabeth Brown (flute, shakuhachi, theremin)
Pro Musica Nipponia
The music of Elizabeth Brown (b. 1953) revels in paradox, but of a subtle kind. The strangeness of the music sneaks up on you; its liquid, mellifluous quality masks a far more radical stance. Seemingly irreconcilable instrumental timbres coexist peaceably: shakuhachi with string quartet, theremin with guitar, Partch instruments with theremin.
The music is blessed with an old-fashioned gift for clear and singable melody ...except for the fact that the tune keeps bending and melting. There is a genuine romantic sensibility, yet it exists in a sound world that can only be avant-garde.
