"A native of Mexico, where as a young man he encountered and became friends with American maverick Conlon Nancarrow, Enrico Martinez has been sculpting remarkably original polyrhythmic compositions for well over a decade. Inspired equally by Balinese Gamelan techniques, the player piano masterworks of Nancarrow, and Mexican folk traditions, Enrico Martinez and his group Microritmica blends complex and virtuosic hocketing techniques, meticulously performed on a combination of piano, marimba and altered guitars, with a striking sense of drama. Tzadik is proud to present the first recordings outside Mexico of this iconoclastic composer."
