Follow up to Mode 54, recordings by the ST-X Ensemble, with the participation of the composer. Features: first recording of "A La Memoire de Witold Lutoslawski" ("It is a literal monument of sound, comprised of massive blocks of brass arranged as a dirge like fanfare."); "Akrata" (for 8 winds & 8 brass, "classic and seminal Xenakis. The work's skittering, repeated notes and extreme changes of dynamic yield a sense of vast, isolated space"); "Echange" ("a terrifying and mysterious 'concerto' for bass clarinet and ensemble"); "Xas" (for saxophone quartet) & "Okho" (for 3 djembes & bass drum).
