"Mutable Music is pleased to announce the debut release by composer and hammer dulcimer virtuoso Dan Joseph. Entitled Archaea, the recording consists of three recent extended chamber works performed by The Dan Joseph Ensemble: Tom Chiu (violin), Michael Lowenstern (clarinet), Danny Tunick (percussion), Marija Ilic (harpsichord), Loren Dempster (cello) and the composer on hammer dulcimer. Influenced most directly by the first generation minimalists, Joseph's works bring a welcome new voice to the idiom with his unique sense of timbre, intricate rhythms and unexpected formal turns. Equal parts East coast and West coast, Appalachian and Balkan, rock and baroque, his style is characterized by its immediate beauty, positive spirit and exhilarating drive."
